The rat race. Opted out? How about living the good life by making your life Great? It’s easy in concept — *most* people will not exert as much intelligent effort as one who knows why they want what they want.
Do what is hard (to most people), and your life becomes easy (well, not exactly). Your life becomes worthwhile.
Def. Worthwhile: being worth the time or effort spent
What determines the value, the worth, of your chosen task? You do. What criteria do you utilize to ascertain what value means to you?
