A useful comment on HN
Spend as much of your free time and energy focusing on giving and helping others rather than enriching yourself.
Find ways to delight in the well-being and success of others—all others, everybody you know, everybody in the world. And when you feel that you aren’t getting your fair share, that you’ll miss out—take a long, long pause, really feel into that emotion, and see if self-centered thinking ends up getting you more of what makes you happy or not.
Mind: this is incredibly difficult. It’s nobody’s fault if they can’t or don’t do this. Almost every single meme and conditioned habit that’s in you and the culture you live in works against this pattern.
