Slouched in front of the TV, phone in hand, browsing through the latest social media posts, not paying any attention to the programme on in the background, I was suddenly struck with how little I’d achieved.

I had a good, secure job. I’ve had some great life experiences already and hopefully many more to come. I have a family, certainly my proudest achievement, but what else had I accomplished?


I went to work, earned money, and spent it. Aside from being a good consumer and gathering lots of belongings, there wasn’t anything I could say I had achieved.
