The author of the blog post is also the author of a book on "how to live a meaningful life". And the first thing that you hit on that webpage is a sad "ad" to check out the rest of the website, "BEFORE YOU GO, CHECK THIS OUT!".
But I thought... Well, it's #2 on Hacker News, perhaps the content is good...
After reading the article, my impression didn't change: an empty article, cliches all over the place, including stock photos every now and then.
I hate this part of the Internet.
Kinda been thinking about something James Clear, who has likewise been out promoting his book about productivity, said recently that I thought rang true which was (paraphrasing) "The people you follow [online] will end up determining your future thoughts, so choose them carefully."
The path to that conclusion: Very weak, at best.
I agree with you.
