PathNorth was founded with the belief that leaders are more isolated than ever. This article, Loneliness: An Under-Diagnosed Epidemic Among New CEOs, from Inc. Magazine articulates the detrimental effects of this loneliness.
Often we hope to remove isolation by pursuit of often noble goals and success. Tolstoy's famous essay, How Much Land Does a Man Need?, tells the proverb of a man who found worldly success but lost everything in the journey.
Finally, knowing that success alone isn't enough, we turn to an article, Mastering the Art of Living Meaningfully Well, by Umair Haque, a successful author and influential thinker. In it he shares specific ways to ensure happiness and a truly satisfying definition of success.
As you've now reflected on life and what's most valuable to you, we encourage you to continue the journey with these books: A Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger, and A Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.
