The great Western disease of "I will be happy when …" is sweeping the world. You know the symptoms. You start thinking: I will be happy when I get that … that promotion … that status … that money ...that win. The only way to cure the disease is to find happiness and meaning now.
When older folks who were in their last years of life where asked what advice they would give to younger people there was a theme that was present over and over--find meaning and be happy now! You may work for a wonderful company and believe that your contribution is very important. But when you are 95 and you look around your death bed, very few of your fellow employees will be waving goodbye! Your friends and family will probably be the only people who care. Don't get so lost in pleasing the people who don't care that you neglect the people who do.
