    Feb 20 2013: The simple thing about life is also the complex thing: there is no formula.
    I think life is about purpose and fufillment; not just about going up a real or imagined ladder of success.
    I think the most important thing is knowing what we do for love, and then marching our practice with our potential.

      Feb 22 2013: I totally agree. But do you think, just doing the thing we love is enough? Satisfaction is guaranteed. But we do need an imagined ladder of success to become something in life. Success means money and recognition for our work. And money means something in this world. We cant go out just armed with fulfillment and purpose.
