Bottom Line

“From an evolutionary perspective, living a rich life is not about money. Human happiness and success may be better understood in terms of (a) one’s connections with ancestral ecological conditions as well as (b) the degree of positive influence that one has on broader communities. You may not be able to “take it with you” – but if you lead a life that focuses on (a) building the next generation of leaders and (b) cultivating communities at multiple levels, your mark will be found on this world for centuries to come. What could be richer than that?
