Good philosophies focus on flourishing and flow, rather than fixing on a target and forgetting about the life behind it. Philosophy is about the process, not the goal. Specifically, the process of thinking things through in an undistracted and undistorted way. Of learning to love self-insights enough to overcome the resistance to the effort required to uncover them. Of making better decisions by getting more comfortable filtering and processing inputs from internal (body, mind, memory, emotions) and external sources to produce the sort of suitably reasoned outputs that enhance a life in an honest, whole, long-term sense. The best filter is a smart human brain, and the best human brain is a smart filter.
