Philosopher & entrepreneur Hiroshi Tasaka calls this the Happiness Gap, and says it is the most important personal crisis that we all face. What good are the proceeds of our work if they do not make us any happier? Using a compelling mixture of Zen Buddhist philosophy and the teachings of Friedrich Nietzsche, Tasaka makes a logical argument for the adoption of a purpose in our lives. What sort of life would you be comfortable repeating, over and over again? What sort of life features growth as its central theme? How can we keep our eye on the future while remaining rooted in the present? Tasaka does not provide the answers for the reader, but he does show the importance of having a purpose, or ideal, in one s life. His unique minimalist prose will get a reader of any age inspired to find his true purpose in life.
