Purpose = happiness.


Note: This is the case when physiological (and some safety) needs are met in Maslow's hierarchy of needs (see below). Maybe this is something I can discuss in another issue? Let me know :))


A lesson I continue to learn...


What makes me happiest is having a purpose.


No amount of "things", "experiences", or anything else that's external makes me happy in the long-term.


They provide short term satisfaction, but, and maybe this is amplified because I'm a workaholic, it doesn't fill the pit in my stomach, whilst having a purpose does.


I first discovered this when I went on a ski season at 18-19, it was a dream world, a bubble, an amazing experience, an experience I strung out once I returned home - seeking "things" and "experiences".


But, it wore off.


Now it wears off much quicker - a matter of days or weeks.


On the flip side, and you'll get to hear me say this with the raw emotion in Friday's YouTube video - having the purpose of supporting people with gut issues brings me long-term happiness and fulfilment.


Finding your purpose isn't easy, but idea 2 is a good start... fail hard, fail fast, try new things, learn, grow, and develop.


The quickest way to find out what you want to do is to find out what you don't want to do.
