Eulogy or Resume?

David Brooks poses an important question – do we measure ourselves by what we do or who we are? The battle between our professional and career accomplishments get our attention while we discard or ignore who were are, what we stand for, how we want to live our lives.

We spend a great deal of time in our lives climbing ladders, gaining experience, and attempting to improve our situation. Many measure money and power over human connection and value. Society often gives us the impression we need to be a certain way to fit in and fight the good fight.

Brooks ponders if our attention is on the wrong metrics.
