Contemplation and Definition of success

I first heard of Alain de Botton when reading his book, The Consolations of Philosophy. Since then, I’ve very much enjoyed reading his work and hearing interviews he’s given. So, you can imagine my delight discovering he held a Ted Talk.

Do take a look while he contemplates how our culture defines success and how we might look inside of our minds and hearts to find a more appropriate definition.

  1. Welcome back, Lia! Hope you had a wonderful time.

    I'm reading de Botton on travel at the moment, appropriate since I'm going nowhere ... will take a look at this too.
