It’s not just about doing what you love, it’s about doing what makes your life meaningful. The short version is you need to:
- Belong to a group
- Give your work purpose
- Craft your story: End it with redemption, not contamination, and become the superhero of your life.
- Find Transcendence: Nature is big. Your problems are small.
The long version (well worth reading) is here.
And then, for a little variety, read about how Magical Thinking not exists, but can make you happier here.
And then updated research on what makes a meaningful life (it’s still other people!).
