Teddy Roosevelt and the meaning of life. | 015/100

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”

-Theodore Roosevelt

Roosevelt cracked the code – he found the answer to what gives life meaning.

The sense of purpose and direction the act of making something good gives you is life’s greatest pleasure. And, unlike the transitory joy you get when you eat a double cheeseburger or binge-watch Netflix, it provides a lasting sense of satisfaction.

Working at something, staying consistent, improving over time and having something to show for it. These are the things that fill the void, the emptiness that we’ve all experienced.

So, a question for you: are you working as hard as you can on the work that means the most to you? If not, are you even trying to find it?

Find the work that matters – and you’ll find your meaning.
