A kinder gentler philosophy of success
Alain de Botton
Happy New Year to you all! The end of a year, beginning of a new one, always gives people pause to assess their lives a little bit. I’m sure that, like me, you’ve been asked about your new year’s resolutions. Maybe you make them, maybe you don’t – but I think you’ll all enjoy Alain’s talk which looks at our ideas of success and failure – as he questions the assumptions underlying these two judgments. Is success always earned? Is failure? He’s witty and eloquent and makes a case for us to move beyond snobbery to find true pleasure in our work. Wishing you a wonderful 2019 full of the things that mean the most to you.
