If you were to die now, at this moment, what would you think of as the best thing you've ever done in your life?
On the other hand, I have set up my life so that I contribute in a bunch of little ways on a regular basis to the part of the world immediately around me—my family, friends, partners, community, political activism, homeless animals, work. Those contributions don't get noticed in the world at large, but I do get ongoing pleasure and satisfaction out of contributing in that way, and I seem to strongly want to have that sort of ongoing satisfaction.
So I guess those little contributions would count as the good stuff I've done.
