Why live life with a purpose/passion?
“Life is but a brief second between two vast eternities, what will you do with that life?”
“I’ve seen more happy and content men on death row than in the big homes around here.” ~ George Kettle
Determine, Record, and Pursue your Passion/Purpose
Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless. ~Bertrand Russell, atheist
The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness.
Relationships, not achievements or the acquisition of things, are what matters most in life.
Busyness is a great enemy of relationships.
A Passion for Life
To live well means more than simply staying alive or being comfortable. Our pet animals enjoy that status. If life is to be experienced as our nature has prepared us, we must learn to live with passion; with a sense of focused, self-directed energy. The study of economics reminds us that life is a subjective process of learning, making choices, taking actions. The search for truth and the principled life occurs within each of us, or not at all.
To live with passion is to live an internally directed life that exhibits a fiery, creative, exploring spirit.
