A crash course on the meaning of life

Derek Sivers gets right to the point — the meaning of life. If life is ‘choices’, how can we make better choices? If life is ‘memory’, how can we make more memories? And what if life has no inherent meaning at all except for what we give to it?

Recorded at INK2012, Pune, India
