What Is the Point Of Your Life? (Part 1)

I want to share a great blog post today, titled, “Disappearing into the Fire”. It’s an extremely well written piece. I highly recommend reading it. But the point of the article comes at the end of the anecdote. How do you separate yourself from your work? What are the elements that define you as a person? Are they fundamentally tied to your work, or are you able to exist outside of that dimension? I believe that life is pointless if you can not exist meaningfully through your actions and not solely through your work. How do we, as high achieving, hard-working Americans achieve this? Hopefully part of the answer will come in tomorrow’s blog post, but until then, what do you think? How do you ensure separation of ‘church and state’? And is there fundamental value in doing so?

    That was a great article and I’m very much looking forward to reading Part II. Thanks for posting-it really drives home the point that no matter how ingrained in your job you might be, once you take a step back or leave altogether, you find that it is not so difficult to just forget all the stress.
