What do we mean by a good life? A good life must come to an end. ‘A good life’ looks at what could be said to constitute such a life. There are two fundamental parts: whether your life is good for you, and whether the way you lead it is good (in terms of well-being and virtue). For a good life, you just need your life to have been a good thing for you to have had. The good life is not hard to get. Maybe people fail to recognise how good their lives really are. Perhaps the best way to lead a good life is to conclude your life with a favourable balance sheet.
