My guest today, Nathanael Garrett Novosel, was just six years old when he started questioning the meaning of life. When I was younger, I questioned it as well, but we went about it in different ways. For example, Nate asked big existential questions whereas yours truly watched Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life. It’s no surprise, then, that Nate grew up to write a book on finding purpose and meaning in life, and I’m on the other side of the microphone asking him questions.
Nathanael is a professional researcher and advisor with over 20 years of experience studying individual and group behavior. Over that time, he has researched psychology, evolutionary biology, organizational best practices, leadership decision making, business, technology, finance, and philosophy to understand how the world as we know it works and why.
He spent much of his career using the insights from this research to help the world’s leading executives solve their most pressing organizational challenges and create their strategic plans. Noticing the common drivers of success in all areas of life, he decided to devote his research, problem-solving, and advisory skills to helping people live the best lives possible.
Nate joined me on Uncorking a Story to discuss his new book The Meaning of Life: A guide to finding your life’s purpose.
- The impact his father leaving the home when he was 5 years old had on his choice to write this book.
- Why growth is so important in finding meaning and purpose in life.
- Identifying the influencers on our emotions and how we can change them.
- The importance of taking action.
- Why having faith, not necessarily religious faith, can lead us to a more successful life.
