I figured something out just now. When I experience something that provokes my interest or pulls at my emotions, all I can think of is calling a friend to talk about it. I want to appreciate these things with someone. From that I realized that my overall goal was simple:
All I want in life is to have amazing experiences with great people.
All that remains is to define “amazing experiences”. The short answer, I suppose, is that of exploring the world and discovering things. That’s on the intellectual side. On the primal side I suppose it equates to tapping into as many rewarding emotions as possible without being dangerous to others.
If you only had two paragraphs, what would your life’s goal be?
