We live in very interesting times... With the rise of traditional and later social media, beauty standards were set in order to make us feel bad and sell more stuff. Many people started falling into body image issues and feeling ashamed of how they look. However, looking at the latest most successful people we would come to conclusion that intelligence and hard work are a lot more important than appearance and it's clear that you can be successful without looking super good. Do looks really matter or we should just put up with the way we look and do nothing about it?
Purpose was always a very phylosophical and religious topic. Most of the religions tells us that we have our destiny and there's nothing we can do about it, there's no way to change it. But years were passing and scientists more often came to conclusion that there's no higher purpose into our being on Earth - We are just a part of natural accidents, just like the whole Universe is.
Money became the most important unit of measurement in human society: unit of success, unit of happiness, unit of possibilities... Most of the people get up from their beds just because they need to make money; they trade their time and freedom for money; their biggest fear and trouble is money. We are thinking about money all the time - at least once every 20 minutes or so.
Lately I've been reading a book called "How to win friends and influence people in the digital age" - a modernized version of classic Dale Canegie's best selling book. That's one of the few books that I'd recommend to everyone because it is about one of the most important things that we all have in common - communication.
