Aristotle on Anger

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.

-Aristotle

My little extention of this thought process in different domains.

Anybody can make money.
Making right amount of money with moderate amount of work, Keeping balance of other important aspects of life, With ethics and morals, and with deep satisfaction, that is not within everyone’s power and its not easy.

Anybody can get a job,
Working at right place, working for moderate amount of time, with full satisfaction, finding meaning out of it, still earning expected amount, that is not within everyone’s power and is not easy.

Anybody can get married,
But married to right person for right purpose with firm commitments, Finding Satisfaction with Sustainablity, This is hard.

Doing business is easy,
But doing business of what we love, bringing change through creating something that never were, making life of people better through what you are going, This is hard combination.

Anybody can get degree,
Understanding things fundamentally, Being able to make creative and reliable connection of your learnings and synthesising that Knowledge for reality based problem, This is by far the hardest combination in this entire thread.

None of this will happen from the first shot of it, but it worths striving for. That process of striving for it, adds meaning to life at whichever point we are.
