#26 - How to be useless

21 mins | Feb 16, 2022

Reclaim your life, be happier and more fulfilled. Do you ever measure your value against how much you're able to do? That might be problematic. The idea that uselessness means we're failing in life can often trap us in vicious cycles and chip away at our self-worth. Enter Daoist philosophy — a school of thought which offers a different perspective on the vast enjoyment to be had by freeing ourselves from a means-to-an-end mentality. In this guide from Psyche magazine, professors Helen De Cruz and Pauline Lee draw from the Daoist masterpiece Zhuangzi to help us let go of the need to produce, strive or serve a purpose. Feel wiser and more fulfilled on your walks with Curio's life hack audio guides from Psyche magazine. Perfect for taking time out for yourself and making the most of your walking time, with new episodes released every Wednesday.
