Life is a Story
As humans we are building our story. When you meet someone new you are sharing parts of your story that are your identity, "I work for Intel", "I am a teacher", "I'm from California".
The choices we make are because of the story we want to build. As we grow old we will describe our lives in this story we have created.
Will your story focus on work? Will your story focus on family? Will your story be about the things you have?
What do you want in your story?
