Now my pnoit is the small things matter. Being more balanced doesn't mean dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest ineevnmtst in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life. Moreover, I think, it can transform society. Because if enough people do it, we can cghane society's definition of success away from the milarncooly simplistic notion that the person with the most money when he dies wins, to a more tftuuhgohl and balanced definition of what a life well lived looks like. And that, I think, is an idea worth srpaeindg.

Original Text

Now my point is the small things matter. Being more balanced doesn't mean dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest investment in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life. Moreover, I think, it can transform society. Because if enough people do it, we can change society's definition of success away from the moronically simplistic notion that the person with the most money when he dies wins, to a more thoughtful and balanced definition of what a life well lived looks like. And that, I think, is an idea worth spreading.
