A Simple Definition of “Philosophy of Life”

In Philosophy, Self Improvement, Short Thoughts, Stoicism

I recently (re)read The Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy, which is a fantastic read.

I especially love the introduction, when the author asks not what you want in life (cars, financial success, etc), but what you want out of life.

That’s a difficult question.

However, it’s one worth asking and thinking about, because developing a simple definition of a “Philosophy of Life”, could be as simple asking the following question:

What’s your grand goal of living?

And by this I mean, what is the goal that, above all others, you would not sacrifice for anything else?
