As the product of my generation and a young man with pretty average abilities, I am guilty of this as much as you are.
I want to know instead of understanding.
My mind is always looking for shortcuts.
I am impatient.
I want to skip the hard work.
I pay attention to vanity metrics like likes, claps, followers, and the money Medium sends my way.
But the truth is, we all want meaning in our lives.
And there’s no shortcut to meaning.
Not in education. Not in relationships. And not in writing.
This piece is about how to find that meaning.
