The first step of my philosophical journey was reading The Fountainhead. The novel taught me to uncompromisingly seek my own self-interest and values. If values are personal and selfish, then I must choose them myself. From my smallest choice of personal taste, to my choices in friends or career, I cannot depend on others to set my direction. For every choice I make, I must have a reason.
But what are my values? How do I know?
