Presenter: Emily Esfahani Smith
There's an idea in our culture that living a meaningful life is some grand pursuit—that you have to be a spiritual guru or lifesaving surgeon to count your life as meaningful. Actually, that's not true. Each and every person, regardless of who they are and what they do, can lead a meaningful life. The question is—how? Emily Esfahani Smith draws on the new and growing body of social science research, as well as the stories of ordinary and extraordinary people she interviewed, to reveal what the building blocks of a meaningful life are. In this webinar, she'll share with you some key steps and takeaways to help you lead a richer and deeper life.
