What Makes a Good Life & How to Live One

The question, “What makes a good life?” has plagued philosophers and intellectuals for millennia. It is one of, if not the most important question for our species.

Everything we do is driven by our desire for a good life. And yet, despite doing our best to have a good life, we’re often left feeling unhappy and dissatisfied.  If we give in to every urge and impulse, we may find ourselves sick and miserable. If we resist every desire for pleasure, we may feel fit but mentally deprived.

So what is the balance? What is the actual secret to a good life? Why has the answer to this question been so elusive? And most importantly, why does doing the things we think would lead to a good life, often leave us more miserable than we were before? I answer these and many more questions in this important podcast episode.
