Excellence Reporter: Anila, what is the meaning of life?
Anila Rubiku: Take risks.
Take risks all your life because you’ve only one life to live.
For those who believe in two or more lives, the answer to this question is pretty simple: live as you’re told to get the second life you deserve and, in most cases, for eternity.
For those who believe that there’s only one go round, you have to make your own meaning. This can only happen by taking risks. Maximising whatever you find pleasurable rather than minimising pain. And for God’s sake forget about dying; it’s paralysing you.
