Back on October 29, dear friends Maureen and Timmy Laniak sent me a link to a talk that the New York Times columnist David Brooks did at the 2013 Aspen Ideas Festival. Today, December 31st, I’ve finally made the space to watch and listen.
Titled The Inverse Logic of Life, Brooks’ relaxed reflection on humility and character leave me breathless.
In fact, this talk has me unexpectedly leaning into 2017 with hope, expectation, and resolve.
You know how sometimes the cry of your heart is echoed by someone’s articulation of reality in a way you could never have done? That’s what Brooks’ talk does for me.
If you only have have fifty-five minutes and fifty seconds for one thing in 2017, start here.
