David Brooks: The Second Mountain — The Next Big Challenge in Your Life

Success, stability, security — achieving these goals is life’s “first mountain,” says New York Times op-ed columnist David Brooks. But once you’ve climbed it, what comes next?

The search for one’s true purpose. What does it mean to move from material gain to spiritual satisfaction? To focus on building character rather than attaining status? This is life’s “second mountain,” and Brooks, the bestselling author of The Road to Character, is here to offer his signature ethical perspective on this pivotal turning point. Join one of today’s top commentators on politics, culture and the social sciences for an eye-opening discussion of the quest for deeper meaning.
