Achievement and Progress2023-10-30

Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.

Ayn Rand

Life success is achieving truly important things ( health, wealth, influence) for yourself, progeny, and your extended kin (whether you define that narrowly as your extended family, or broadly as humankind as a whole). Life satisfaction is a consequence of life success, or at least of making progress towards achieving life success and developing tools to achieve it.

We have to be careful that progress itself does not become an addiction, that we do not go through our lives being busy but not culminating in achieving important things. And life satisfaction can be hijacked by classic chemical addictions (such as alcohol, drugs) or newer informational ones (such as digital addictions). So we need to make sure that our life satisfaction does not get way ahead of our success (a sure sign of addictions), or lags way behind our success (a sure sign of mental health issues).

Our Life x Mind app tracks your Life Success and your Life Satisfaction, notifies you if they are in sync or not, and can analyze which feelings and thoughts, life events, and addictions increase or decrease them. This way you can stay on track, move through your life in a productive and constructive way, rectify what needs to be rectified, and reach your ultimate destination, which is peace of mind and no regrets at the end of your days.

Live. Happier. Longer.
