Consider this dramatically oversimplified formula:
Life satisfaction = pleasure + meaning
It is an excerpt from an about a 30min read from Kevin Simler. His A Nihilist’s Guide to Meaning begins decidedly tongue in cheek & crafts a wonderful essay with which to begin your work week.  He does a great job of illustrating what creates or enhances meaning as well what erode or even destroys it. 
Things like…
  • Children.
  • Helping others.
  • Community.
  • Fame.
  • Network centrality.
  • Ancestors.
  • Religion. 
  • Progress vs. decay. 
  • Space colonization.
  • Meaningful careers vs. bullshit jobs.
I believe understanding how not only you but others find / have found meaning in life is an incredibly valuable exercise.
As always thank you for reading,
Jon
