Notes on Living a Meaningless Life | Ep. 197

Most people know the quote "Everything means nothing until you make it something." This one aphorism is as powerful as it is brief. The truth is that our search for "meaning" in life is both our gift and curse.

If you're anything like us, then chances are high that you've already taken a lot of steps to acknowledge and double-down on the legacy and long-term thinking. Yet, what happens in the interim? How do you make it through each day knowing that you likely won't see the fruits of your labor for quite some time (if ever)?

The good news is that you're not alone in this line of questioning. Quite a bit of thought has already been given to these problems exactly, and you're in good company if you also feel a desire to find answers.

Some of the topics we cover in this talk include but are not limited to: 

  • How to deal with boredom, angst, and dread
  • Where true "freedom" comes from
  • How to interpret what things are worth your time
  • How to assess the absurdity of our existence
