Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, founder of Logotherapy

It’s hard to look away from what is going on in the world right now. I have many friends throughout Europe in Estonia, Slovakia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Germany and other countries.

There are echoes of WWII, that brought me to Viktor Frankl’s seminal book Man’s Search for Meaning which is a treasure beyond measure. In it Frankl describes his lessons learned as a holocaust survivor, and how his experiences shaped a therapeutic approach that helps people find personal meaning in life. In it, he flips a question I think we all have, to make it a vastly more powerful question to answer.

In this 3 minute video I share that passage because I think it asks a question, and makes a point, that is fundamental to great leadership, and life itself.
