I will skip the philosophical view of what life is and what is its ultimate goal. I will instead focus on the ultimate goal of my life, as perceived by me. I believe in the maxim – "Do what you do, do well". These words are from a song by Ned Miller. These words are also what my husband always tells our daughter when she is about to attempt something new or finds success in what she has done. In fact, there is a coffee mug that we presented her to mark her 16th birthday and we had these same words printed on it.
"Do what you do, do well", is a constant reminder to give all you do your best. It pushes you to achieve. It reminds you not to do things halfheartedly and to put everything into what you do. For me, the ultimate goal of my life is to think clearly and act with conviction, giving my all to every task or responsibility.
