If You Weren't A Generalist, You Are One Now

Everyone wants the same thing.

They want a perfect moment. (This moment is literally not a moment as it has an eternal character.)

That's why people want to fall in love. That's why they do drugs. That's why they dine, or literally anything else a human being can do in life during which they experience pleasure at its nicest. They are trying, consciously or unconsciously, to stimulate a perfect moment, in which to feel at one with the universe.

You can do a lot of fun setup. But you can't make the perfect moment happen. That's how come you can still be rich and miserable...

Perfect moments are a matter of paying attention, learning to enjoy it as it is happening... to give in to it...
