Unraveling Life’s Riddle
Happiness is fleeting, but meaning endures—even through terrible unhappiness. This book helps to unravel the riddle of how to bring meaning to one’s life. It also outlines a disciplined technique for uncovering meaning in life. This meaning becomes a north star for navigation and appears in the overlap between an identity and a worldview.
