Life is a Mountain. How are you making the climb to a good life?

A REALITY of the Mountain of Life.

The real world now: get a degree, get a job, and get married. We can’t help but get caught up in it, it’s the traditional song and dance. Listening on the way to work to the radio of get that job. Searching online for the next person to marry and realizing the resume seems empty without an advanced college degree. 

It’s a catchy tune and a lot of people play to it. However for me, it was a karaoke nightmare. If I had just picked a different song to sing and dance to, I could have given a better performance. Now the stage is set, the mountain to actually climb, and it feels like it’s more my song and dance.

Re-engineer your good life.

A young man has followed all the rules destined to give him fulfillment—going to grad school, finishing an engineering degree, and landing a high-paying career. Yet he has not found satisfaction in these things he was told to value. Afraid to break from the traditional song and dance of “get a degree, get a job, and get married in life”, he embarks on a journey to discover the values he needs in his true song and dance.

The Impression of a Good Life: Philosophical Engineering, self help/memoir, is a seven leg hike that mirrors Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and Barrett’s seven levels of consciousness, during which the student discovers what his formal education and work experience are unable to offer him, values other than “titles” and “money”.  In the process of climbing the mountain of life, he learns about his unique “thinking thumb print,” which proves to him he can overcome the fear of being on stage singing and dancing what he wants to play in life.
