What You Enjoy

18th February 2016

These bits of Jocelyn K. Glei’s interview of Sebastian Thrun had me nodding:

“…imagine that you are already successful. You’ve looked into the future, and you’ve succeeded. What would you enjoy doing today given that knowledge?”

“The data shows that people who are rich aren’t any happier, so you might as well derive your happiness from what you are doing today.”

    Wow, that’s a pretty interesting thought experiment. Reminds me of “What would you try if you knew you would not fail?”

    I’ve been ruminating on this for a few days, and have decided I would ENJOY being a stay-at-home mom and part-time tutor. I’m already those things, but think I drown my enjoyment of them in guild that I’m not something more successful. It may be time to let go of the idea that I owe womankind a big paycheck and nice work shoes and instead feel free and happy in my big little life.
