It does not mean that you ignore the greater good. It means that you achieve greater good 'in your own way'. Good morning 🙂
No one has a perfect beginning. As you go along the way,you need to perfect the system you live in. That doesn't guarantee that you will have perfect ending. But what it will guarantee is meaningful life. Contributing to your own existence and that of others during the process of perfection.
Great solutions are nothing more than simple ideas.That's what makes them so great.
