Inspirational quotes usually strike me as aspirational porn, fairly meaningless aside from momentarily revving you up, relied upon by people who are aiming present a facade that masks their terror. Sorry if you’re one of those people. I truly hope you live, laugh, and love.

Now, here’s where I whip out something wonderful I heard yesterday at precisely the right time in my existence. I was listening to Tim Ferriss’ podcast interview with Chip Conley and quite early in the episode they said:


“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

William Shakespeare or Pablo Picasso, depending on who you ask.

This has it’s own very personal impact for me. I hope it finds its way to holding meaning for you, too.
