Tweets by The Wise Sloth #2: Fulfillment, Purpose and Meaning

Cartoon image of a sloth sitting on a mountain top. He is wearing a yellow robe. His head is bowed with his eyes shut, and beams of light shine from around his head. With his left arm, he is holding one finger in the air. Above him are the words, "Tweets by The Wise Sloth."

The meaning of life isn’t to have the thing you want most. It’s to become the person you want most.

You can spend today fretting about what was or is… or you can spend today creating what will be.

If you don’t have a plan how you’re going to make life better for yourself, it won’t happen.

If you’re not making time to do the things you love, the reason it feels like you’re not really living is because you haven’t started.

If you haven’t worked towards your goal today, then having fun and playing games isn’t rewarding yourself. It’s how you’re failing.

If you’ve never asked yourself what you would do with your free time if you won the lottery then you may not have defined your destiny.

Obsessing over how much you’re worth squanders time you could spend getting on with your life.

Trying something new is usually preferable to doing something old. Even if you don’t like it, you still learn something new. That’s winning.

Life is more about what you do than what you have.

Life is more about who you are than what you do.

The people who hurt you in the past don’t exist anymore… and neither do the people they hurt.

Learn something new every day and it’s only a matter of time until you become a better person… especially if you learn important things.

If you drink and smoke every day… that’s probably all you’ll ever be able to afford to do.

If you could learn anything, what would you learn? If you’re not already learning it, why aren’t you?

Control your thoughts and you control your destiny. Or did you have something better to do than control your destiny?

Doing things that improve your life = worldly success. Succeeding at the expense of other people’s quality of life = existential failure.

The future matters more than the past.

Every city in the world has opportunities that only exist there and nowhere else. Take advantage of yours.

Constantly listen to old songs that your brain already associates with previous experiences and thoughts? You may be living in the past.

If you’re hyperactive and can’t stay still, and you don’t have a hobby, you’re leaving money and meaning on the table.
