Simple question: what is your end-game in life?
Download PDF: End-Game
Think about death
Nowadays, you hear a lot of talk about people attempting to retire early, and achieve ‘financial independence’.
And of course a lot of us are rolling the rock of sisyphus, trying to accrue more money, power, and influence for the sake of it.
But how rarely do we ever ask ourselves:
What is our true end-game in life?
Play the game backwards
I think this is an optimal strategy in life:
Figure out what your end-game is in life, then play it backwards.
For example, let us say that your end-game is to philosophize, write poetry, write essays, or make photos. Then why waste time trying to accrue more money in order to do that? Take a kink out of your chain — just pursue your end-game via a straight-line!
Let me give you an example: a lot of us dream of one day retiring and traveling the world. But then what?
I think a lot of people want to travel the world to feel “inspired” or to become “cultured”. But once you get inspired, open your mind, and become cultured…then what?
I think what people truly want to do as an end-game is to create. To create their own designs, to create photos, or to create art. Art can be manifested via computer code, poetry, pictures, visual art, sculpture, dance — anything.
Everyone has a different end-game
Stop asking others for advice what to do with your life. Everyone has a different end-game in life.
Start off by asking yourself:
“What is my end-game in life?”
Then use philosophy-entrepreneurship as a tool to achieve that end-game, and to make that end-game a reality!
