So this is  The übermensch vs the common good or the Pros and Cons of Lifestyle Design!  I am comparing the Pros and Cons of Lifestyle Design or at least have links about them for now! 

Part of what these guys who are Pro-Lifestyle Design talk about are being so awesome and creating this or that or becoming more than the Average Joe would their self-help books tell you to become the übermensch? how do we feel about the universe and the common good?  
PRO 

"Superman or Zarathustra would be the highest possible development and integration of intellectual power, strength of character and will, independence, passion, taste, and physique. He would be highly-cultured, skilful in all bodily accomplishments, tolerant out of strength, regarding nothing as forbidden unless it is weakness ("virtue" or "vice"). He is the man who has become fully free and independent and affirms life and the universe." http://www.carroll.edu/msmillie/philocontempo/Nietzschephilo.html



lifestyle design and your ideal world

"In the manifesto that has now been downloaded more than 100,000 times, I wrote about how many people have no idea what they want to get out of life. The answer to the question, “What do you really want?” tends to trip a lot of us up."

Why lifestyle design will make you miserable

"Lifestyle is the new black. Minimalism rules and pundits are trying to find the new definition of “enough”. It seems that any self respecting entrepreneur is supposed to build a micro-internet business to support their ambitions. Those ambitions usually revolve around tropical retirements and/or working from your PJs while homeschooling your kids."
