The Second Mountain – David Brooks

Every so often, you meet people who seem to know why they were put on this earth. Life, for these people, has often followed a two-mountain shape. Their goals on the first mountain are to be a success, to make their mark, etc. But when they get to the top of that mountain, they look around and find the view unsatisfying. On the second mountain, life moves from self-centered to other-centered. They embrace a life of interdependence, not independence.
