What is your definition of progress?
Is becoming famous and rich a sign of progress?

The more I see these days titles where the author talks about getting rich, famous, or finding a soulmate who falls for you. I start questioning consciousness.

We and the world has become more prosperous than before. Our life expectancy has increased. We have become busier like a robot, running on calendars.

Is progress only related to accumulating material wealth, power, and fame? What about our mental peace, enjoying our solitude, and living life at our own pace? What about enjoying and living moment to moment?
