"I believe the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness not suffering. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affect this. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. Therefore, it’s important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness."

- The Dalai Lama -

It's not about achieving goals or results, it's about being happy on the way there. If you don't find happiness in your day-to-day activities, it's time to step back and think about changing something. It's never too late to change!
