What Makes a Good Life?

What Resonates as True

I don’t know about you, but I get pretty sick and tired of being sold a line of malarkey. Unfortunately, half-truths, twisted facts and out and out lies are part of the human condition. Every industry has its fair share of wolves in sheep’s clothing, but it is also true that there are great ideas, products, and solutions waiting for us to discover and use. The challenge of sorting and sifting through the data can be daunting, confusing and frustrating to be sure. Fortunately, every once in a while, something comes along, and it stands out — simply because it rings true. When it happens to me, I can’t wait to pay it forward. Today, I am sharing a TED Talk that rang my truth bell. The talk answers life’s most important question –“What makes a good life?” You might already know the answer, so this can be just another affirmation. For others, this talk might exactly be what you need to help you clarify your lifelong priorities.

As a Life Coach, I ask questions all day long. Questions help us sort and sift through the debris of thoughts, feelings, and ideas that help us to decide our preferences and behaviors. But we all know that a long line of questioning isn’t going to lead us to our answer if we don’t fully understand what is at stake. When the stakes are your quality of life, it’s probably a good idea to make sure you have the best information available.

What Makes a Good Life?

Have you asked yourself what it is you most want out of life? Or are you mainly focused on the short term? If you find yourself focusing on the short term, perhaps it’s time to slow down long enough to reevaluate. It’s the best chance you have to discover what truly matters most of all.
