A Life Well Lived

The rules we grew up with about how the world works are rapidly changing. It's now possible to travel full-time before retirement. Work can be more fulfilling than just paying the bills. And "success" is being defined less by how big a person's bank account is, and more by how satisfied they are with their life.
