My lady shared this great little podcast with David Brooks, the NYTimes columnist, in conversation with Tina Brown.
The former Vanity Fair editor quizzes Brooks’ on his new book The Second Mountain: The Quest For A Moral Life whose central theme got me all excited.
There are two mountains in life:
The one we grow up climbing, be it your dream job &/or the Kodak family.
The other being the one that lies within the depths of our soul.
For most of us, this second mountain shows itself in the wake of trauma. Following the loss of someone special or an unfortunate health diagnosis.
In order to reach our true potential we need to have the strength to venture down into the valley and listen to the silence.
Then we need to lace up our hiking boots and start climbing.
