What does happiness mean to you?
What does wealth mean?
What does your dream life look like?
I spend a lot of time thinking about these concepts and the life I really want. What is it that would bring me joy? Most ‘things’ don’t, but some get me closer, and many experiences sure do.
Consider this definition, from this podcast with Yuval Noah Harari: he said in essence that his life has not changed tremendously as he has built fame and wealth, but when he goes to the grocery store, he doesn’t think about it when he buys a pineapple. Apparently pineapples are particularly expensive in Israel, and this is a sign, for him, that he is living his version of a very comfy life.
