🧘 Naval Ravikant’s Happy Meal on ‘Happiness’
Naval Ravikant shares his recipe for happiness, claiming it’s our natural state — like the nutritional label on a box of cereal, but less depressing.
He asserts that happiness doesn’t pop like popcorn from the presence of positive thoughts but from the absence of desire.
If we can rid ourselves of wanting, toss away the tangled past and future like an old salad, we can slurp up the delicious soup of present happiness.
📚 Ravikant’s Crunchy Core Values
Ravikant stirs honesty and long-term thinking into his daily life like key ingredients in a hearty stew.
These core values shape the sizzle of his business practices and the texture of his personal relationships.
Over time, like a maturing cheese, his values have evolved, transforming from a quest for personal freedom to freedom from the heartburn of anger and obligation.
🌌 Naval’s Spicy Special on The Purpose of Life
Sprinkling a dash of philosophy onto our plates, Ravikant suggests that the purpose of life isn’t a pre-packaged meal, but more like a build-your-own-taco kind of deal.
He accentuates the importance of the seasoning process (questioning) and proposes that, while our actions might seem insignificant like a single grain of salt in the cosmos’ soup, they are nonetheless as meaningful to us as hot sauce on a taco.
That’s all we’ve got on the grill for this episode of “3 Things I Learned Last Week.” Here’s to hoping these zesty insights offer you a taste of thought-provoking perspectives, leading to a well-rounded diet of personal and professional growth. Stay tuned for more delectable discoveries next week!

Yours in the love of learning,
P.S. For those more into fast-food wisdom, here’s your TL;DR:
- Like a cold soda, happiness is our natural state when we sip in the present, free from the thirst of desire and the bloating of past and future anxieties.
- Core values are like the secret sauce in Naval Ravikant’s philosophy burger.
- The spice of life lies in questioning the purpose of our existence, not necessarily finding the exact recipe. Remember, we’re just a sprinkle of paprika in the grand cosmic curry.
