We may have a great job.
Or an envious education.
Perhaps we are settled as per the definition of the world.
Yet, we feel something is missing.
There is a hole within that none of the external things are able to fulfill.
What if we asked ourselves, “what is the one thing I want right now”? Not five, not three, just one; and then chase it.
It could be money, or work life balance or more family time – there is no right or wrong, there is just one inherent need that we all must fulfill. If we fulfill that one need, we will feel at peace with ourselves.
When we want everything, we end up with nothing.
When we optimise for one thing, almost everything takes care of itself.
