The Purpose of Life

Posted by Tom Locke on August 2nd, 2018 filed in Education, General, History, Life

I  have often asked people  what they thought the purpose of life was.   Many respond  by saying, “Being happy”.   I then asked them how they went about “being happy”.   Invariably we would get around to doing things that make them happy.

And it is the doing of things that make you happy with the greatest highs coming from doing things for other people and observing/feeling their positive reactions.

An analysis of this tells me that the purpose of life is making your life count by being useful, honorable and compassionate.   This approach allows you to make a difference.

Making a difference will put a smile on your face … “being happy” is the result.
