You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.

Purposeful activities

Your success is not determined by how busy you are. It is determined by how well your accomplishments satisfy your purpose.

Living a meaningful life is not necessarily about racking up a profusion of impressive feats. Having much to boast about is not the same as having much to live for.

Yes, be ambitious. And make sure it means something, to you, to your world, your values, your purpose.

What good things would you do even if no one would ever know you had done them? What places would you visit just for the experience, not for the selfie photos or bragging rights?

Do those things, go to those places. When deciding what to do, make sure it means something.

Merely being busy for the sake of being busy rewards you with anxiety and not much else. It’s being purposeful in the activities you choose, that brings you true fulfillment.

— Ralph Marston
