To the point of this blog, I am 47 years old today and only just starting to ‘get it’. I want my life to matter — in a way that transcends traditional measures of success — money, class or seniority. I want it to matter because it made a difference to someone somewhere.

Absolutely love this, Nik! I’m happy for you that have this outlook on life.

As Tony Robbins put it: “Achievement without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.”

The way you described your aspirations (“I want my life to matter…”), I doubt you’ll fall into the trap he describes.
