Great video. I think most of us suffer from this sometimes and you summed up the solution perfectly: self-awareness. People want to be rich or have status but only have a vague notion of why they want those things. I think happiness comes from lifting a load and doing something useful, whatever that means to the individual.

Thanks Shawn!

I agree and find more meaning myself from doing things that have an impact.

But I’ve been on some projects in the past with little impact but good pay.

That’s usually the perfect breeding ground for silly chasing of other people’s career decisions.
