Joys of Compounding Chapter 10: Living Life according to Inner Scorecard

“The little mental trick is to remember that success, money, fame, and beauty, all the things we pursue, are merely the numerator!

If the denominator — shame, regret, unhappiness, loneliness — is too large, our ‘Life Satisfaction Score’ ends up being tiny, worthless.

Even if we have all that good stuff!

It’s so simple. This is why you see people that ‘should be happy’ who are not.

Big denominators destroy self-worth.”

- Shane Parrish

Cherish some man of high character, and keep him ever before your eyes, living as if he were watching you and ordering all your actions as if he beheld them.

- Seneca
