    There is a famous quote from Spock in "amok time" from the original: "After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical... but it is often true." Having had multiple careers across several different industries, the enjoyment of the pursuit and the challenge of building something is often much more gratifying than the goal itself.

  • Happiness doesn't come from achievement. It comes from the honorable pursuit of achievement, surrounded by people you like.

  • "We thought of life by analogy with a journey, with a pilgrimage, which had a serious purpose at that end, and the thing was to get to that thing at that end. Success, or whatever it is, or maybe heaven after you’re dead.

  • "Quality time we spend with people we care about and who care about us. In other words, relationships."

    "Quality time we spend with people we care about and who care about us. In other words, relationships."

    That's most important—I believe life is about connections, those connections and relationship you build with and within yourself first and foremost, then with your purpose, people you love and care about, passions, ideas, etc.

    It's the journey that matters not the destination. That's why when I offered ppl salaries or signed pro players with 6 figure contracts, compensation (as long as it's not extremely below market) is really a big deal during offer time and review time. The rest of the time they don't really think about it.

    The rest of the time is the journey and enjoying that journey towards achieving autonomy, mastery, and/or purpose—3 core motivations that drive people to do the creative work they do and make an impact.

  • Destination dont make u as happy as u thought, the work leading to it do.
