There are plenty of examples where success has failed to secure happiness. I think PURPOSE is more important. Specifically, a purpose that makes the inevitable suffering of life worth bearing. Then the question becomes: how do I create purpose? That’s where all those unsexy basics—discipline, attention to detail, being honest with yourself—become relevant. I believe all those basics help clear the perception by mitigating cravings and dispelling outdated beliefs, which in turn paves the way for the unburdened mind to intuit a worthwhile purpose.
