Some personal experience
The meaning bit of business is what really struck a cord with me. Although I've had a lot of opportunities to work to my strengths, ultimately I grew dissatisfied with the work I was doing.
And as far as I can figure till now, it is because in the end, I found the work - or rather the services and goods it helped to produced - personally meaningless. They might provide meaning for others, but not for me.Individual expressions of universal needs
Meaning is a highly individual thing in my experience. And the same goes for the expression
of the other universal(?) needs of survival and community.
Twitter or YouTube can be as much an expression of community as friend or family.
For some, a car may represent unnecessary luxury (like for me during my city dweller times), for others its an essential, indispensable way of earning enough money to survive and to care for their families.The dose makes the poison.
And - as is so very often the case - the dose makes the poison. Me watching a TV series can be a healthy way of recharging and connecting (with other fans). Or it can be an unhealthy obsession.
I fear, I might start to ramble, so I'll stop here. Thanks for thought-provoking video, +The School of Life
