1. What is the meaning of life?

Asim Qureshi answer’s is the most upvoted in this question, he answers:

Quora: Try this. Go to a cafe in a busy part of a city and take a seat that gives you a view of people walking past - perhaps a table on the pavement outside.

Now observe.

What you'll see is hundreds, and, if time permits, thousands of people busily walking to their destinations. Rich, poor, old, young, men, women, boys and girls, not where they want to be, trying to get to some place that they do want to be. When they get there, they’ll soon want to be somewhere else.

You'll see a struggle on most people's faces.

And that's life. We're all trying to get somewhere we're not. It’s a struggle, which only ends on the day we die.

3. How does one succeed in life?

James Altucher wrote very thorough answer about this, so the summary of his answer is

A. VALUES - what do you value most in your life?


If you improve 1% a day at the things you love, then very quickly you find obstacles. 1% a day equals 3800% in a year when compounding.


I’ve asked 400 of the most successful people in the world what they did when they were at their worst.


Sara Blakely, the wealthiest self-made woman in the world (she created Spanx) got her first big order and had only a few weeks to deliver.


When you love something, you WANT to do it in every spare moment.


Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, told me, “I’m pretty good at drawing, but not the best. I’m pretty good at writing, but not the best. I’m pretty funny, but not the best, and I’m pretty good at business, but not the best. But I’m probably the best at the combination.”

G) VISION Don’t read the news. 

Read a lot of books by smart people. Here are some starting points: Sapiens by Yuval Harari the Evolution of Everything by Matt Ridley Antifragile by Nassim Taleb Zero to One by Peter Thiel Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed Thinking in Bets by Annie Duke


Every successful person I know, knows how to persuade. Robert Cialdini’s book “Influence” is the Bible of persuasion techniques. BUT, Vision + Obsession + Health makes it easy to persuade others.


Rule #3 of improvisation is: “Make your scene partner look good.” Nobody gives a shit about you. Stop caring so much about what people think of you.


- get a waiter’s pad every day 

- write down ten ideas
