I am only saying, that area of self-development is empirical and it's maybe time to get higher ...
I think that "the good life" is almost entirely subjective. What is "the good life" for one person is a pretty sucky life for someone else. For many people, "the good life" consists of having a full-time job, getting married, buying a house with a picket fence, having babies, going to church, etc. For someone like me, it consists of a non-traditional job, multiple romantic and sexual partners, attending pagan gatherings and fan conventions, NOT having kids, and having an active social life, among other things.
It really can't be measured, and I wouldn't want that anyway. Much better that each individual figure out what "the good life" is for him/her and does his/her best to attain that.
