Consider this dramatically oversimplified formula:
“Life satisfaction = pleasure + meaning”
It is an excerpt from an about a 30min read from Kevin Simler. His A Nihilist’s Guide to Meaning begins decidedly tongue in cheek & crafts a wonderful essay with which to begin your work week. He does a great job of illustrating what creates or enhances meaning as well what erode or even destroys it.
As always, thanks for reading!
