Default Google: What should I do with my life? BE astonished.

So, I did a deep Google dive, with queries such as:

What should I do with my life?
What the f*ck should I do with my life?
How do I choose my best life?
What would be the best thing for me to do with my life?

And about 20 similar questions. Boy oh boy, what a rabbit hole that was.

Everything from career tests, psychological tests, aptitude tests, to gurus, courses, schools on life, etc., etc., etc. YIKES.

The one I found which most resonated with me was Mark Manson's answer:

However, after visiting dozens of sites, and seeing some solid pieces of advice to downright nonsense, I have come to the conclusion...most advice just

doesn't work for most people. Why?

Because they all start from NOW, and don't bother with your childhood influences, which in many cases are the determining factor or reason why you aren't doing what you want, or are suppose to, or the answer to what you want.

See, I've been asking that question for over 25 years, what do you want? And I know most can't or won't answer it, other than in very vague terms, like to be rich, to have great partner, a Rolex watch...or other such mind tripe.

There are scores of Gurus, Mentors, Coaches, Et al., who say you have a PURPOSE in life, and they will help you find it, it comes with you sort of a predestiny.

I do not subscribe to that thought.

You do have some predetermined genetic dispositions, which may limit your wants, but even more important, those early childhood influences where your deepest thoughts come from.
