Zeroth law of Life

Filed under: meatspace — SiKing @ 10:06 am

Scientists discover laws of Universe – how the universe works. Engineers are paid to break them. There is however the Zeroth law of Engineering – law that no other can supersede and nobody can break. The concept is named after Asimov’s Zeroth law of Robotics. The Zeroth law of Engineering states that any project can be good (quality), fast (on time), or cheap (on budget), pick two!

My Zeroth law of Life states that you can be good (morally, ethically, legally, spiritually, whatever…), rich (at least comfortably), or happy, pick two! Personally I have struggled my whole life to get a firm grip on at least one of these.
