The Purpose Of Life Is Usefulness: Not Happiness - Deepstash

Happiness isn't something you get when you go shopping or go on a vacation. It is a byproduct of doing something meaningful and useful. If we are not making a difference in the world by doing something worthwhile, not adding or creating anything of value, then we cannot achieve happiness just by drinking and getting high.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

  • We can do a lot of things, however small, and still make a difference. Without any grandiose aim of changing the world, even the smallest of things can help make it a better place.
  • We can consider doing an extra-curricular activity in the office, writing a creative article and sharing it, helping someone financially, or even starting a side project that helps our locality.

Just do anything useful, and leave the world a better place than it was before.
