I was going through some big life changes & one of my best friends, Dominic, asked me, “What do you want?”
I struggled with that question for a long time, because I heard it as, “What is worth giving your life to?” How does one answer such a profound question?
Especially, with an impatient Dominic saying things like, “I want you to know that I am here for you, & you can take as long as you need, but I also want to be clear that I am going to punch your kidney once for every day that you take to answer me. Always the same kidney; that way you’ll still have one good one, but I am going to alternate arms in case one gets tired.” Dominic is a good friend…(I think.?)
How to get more out of life than you put in? That seems like a path worth pursuing.
So I divided life into 7 categories & determined that there are 7 basic currencies in life by which to get a return on your investment of your time & life energy. I am working towards an economic formula of life to help discover access to choices & make decisions which give a return in life greater than the effort put in.
I am going to share my experiments & insights live in this blog. I invite anyone interested in living the happiest possible life to share here as well.
