Here are two super simple steps to give your life more meaning. If you’re looking for something more complex, so that you can feel better about yourself and not actually living a more meaningful life, keep looking. But don’t worry – just because they’re simple doesn’t mean they’re easy.
Practice them over and over in an iterative journey into more and more meaning.
Step 1: Figure out what devalues life and stop doing that.
Step 2: Figure out what adds value to life and do more of that.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat…
That’s it. Simple small changes practiced and compounded over time.
Bonus: Some things seem somewhat neutral. They don’t necessarily add value but they don’t necessarily devalue life. Think long and hard about putting those things in your life, because if you invest your life in things that don’t add value, you still end up devaluing your life’s potential.
Life is valuable. Make the most of it.
