What is "Intentional Living"?

Intentional living is defined as “a lifestyle based on an individual's conscious attempts to live according to their values and beliefs.” Our goal at Quest Codex is to help everyone to establish their values, and then implement simple strategies for making those values the driving force behind their daily lives.

What is an "Examined Life"?

Socrates famously said, "The unexamined life is not worth living.” An examined life requires an inward focus on oneself, and a constant evaluation of one's actions, behaviors, and use of time in accordance with your values. An examined life aims to make sense of what we truly want and where we would like to be.

What does the name "Quest Codex" mean?
