“Beware of looking for goals. Look for a way of life. Determine how you want to live, and then see what you can do to make a living within that way of life. ”(Hunter S. Thompson, quoted by Billy Oppenheimer)

We feel fulfilled when we pursue authentic goals.

Michael Lewis discovered that he had a passion for researching and writing while studying at Princeton University.

After graduation, he got a well-paying job at an investment bank.

He saw that his colleagues lost their passion for work after a few years.

After a year and a half, he quit the job.

He wrote his first book, Liar’s Poker, based on his experience on Wall Street. The book sold millions of copies.

Lewis chose a way of life that matched his desire and ability to write.
