Hobbies, fine clothes, gym memberships, better job, season tickets, coolest car, etc. etc. etc.
Those things done make up a “good” life. They’re distractions and coverings. They advocate for appearance-based value and blind consumerism. Worst of all, to achieve all this we have to devote a tremendous amount of time, energy, and heart to resource-building…
… all to be able to convince ourselves and others that all this complex bullshit is coming together to form something “good”.
REAL good, however, is derived from a more simple set of elements.
Wisdom, justice, self-discipline, courage… virtue.
Looking “good” and being good are vastly different.
When I invest in the above, I don’t ever suffer buyer’s remorse.
