In our March Alumni Book Group conversation, we discuss bestselling authors Arthur Brooks and Kate Bowler’s podcast chat about “When Success Isn’t Success.”  How do you find meaning and purpose as a high achiever when you can’t reach your goals (or when the goals change)? How do you reframe your identity with what you do, professionally, changes? We’ll talk about your “Happiness 401k Plan” and where you might need to reinvest, the problem with “bucket list” thinking, and how you are defining success and happiness these days.
