6 Simple Things You Can Do To Your Life To Make It Worthwhile

Let’s look back all these years you’ve gone through, what have you done for your life? Are you spending your time wisely to make your life worthwhile? Neal Wu shared some ways we should do to make our short time of life meaningful on Quora, find out what you need to do next:

1. Make friends as opposed to networking.

Your friends will go a lot further than the professional contacts you make, especially since only one of the two groups is invested in your personal happiness.

2. Become an expert by learning as much as you can and deeply seeking out the things you are curious about.

Find the things you enjoy and practice the skills you want to develop. If you can achieve expertise then it will be easy to obtain an audience.

3. Volunteer to help out those less fortunate.

In the process you will gain a ton of new perspective and will better understand other people’s real problems. In a society that always looks upward, these people are being forgotten easily.

4. Become as independent as possible.

Even though you work in a big company, you should constantly make small steps to reduce your dependence on your job. Write a book, build an app, or start a small business on the side. Release your inner entrepreneur.

5. Don’t spend too much time worrying about your personal brand.

Accomplish things, and the recognition will follow.

6. Stop treating life as a competition and do things for their own sake.

Genuine interest should be what drives you to improve yourself, rather than a desire to beat others. Find a community of people who are interested in the same things as you do, and drive each other to keep improving.
