Every generation seems to develop a new set of mindsets and mythologies about how to create a good life through effort and action. The concept of "Hustle and Grind" captures the current mindset about what it takes to be successful and happy. But happiness, contentment, satisfaction, a sense of worth - all the things we think come with success - simply cannot be attained. They cannot be pursued as a goal and are not the result of some success or accomplishment. This conversation is about what is, and always has been, the nature of human happiness and how to approach your education, your work, and your life in a way that is an on-going relationship with happiness.
