Most lives are lived by default


It is typical in human lives to feel like something huge is missing or unsettled.

It is typical for the major aspects of a human life (career, friends, habits and home) to be decided by happenstance, and not consciously.

The feeling of something huge being missing is probably often due to a serious mismatch between what you currently have in one of those aspects, and what is best for you in one of those aspects.

Making conscious changes to the aspects of life you???ve accepted by default can result in dramatic and immediate changes to quality of life.

Few people do this. Few people make a deliberate quest out of finding their perfect city or neighborhood, of seeking out their truly like-minded. Most of us live seventy or eighty years defending what we???ve been given, because we think it???s who we are.

At any given time, the prospect of a major change will tend to seem out of the question. This is because you believe you are what you???ve been doing this whole time. From the other side of a major change, the thought of continuing the with way things were will seem absurd.

So it’s not just me!
