Quod omnia appetunt.

The good? That’s easy. It’s whatever you want.

The crisis is that (a) we don’t know what we want and (b) when we know what we want – to learn a language, write a book, repair our relationships, kick a bad habit, become a better person – we always find ourselves doing things other than what we need to do to get there. We act nothing like the person we would act like if the if our work towards our goals was monitored by a powerful and persistent third party.
