Sharlyn Lauby: The Meaning of Life Lies in Strengths and Talents

Lauby Hi ResExcellence Reporter: Sharlyn, what is the meaning of life?

Sharlyn Lauby: The first thing that came to mind was the famous song from Monty Python, “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.” And I don’t mean that to be cheeky.

The meaning of life is about finding your “bright side.” I like to think of “bright” as finding our strengths or talents. Life is about finding the place that allows your inner brightness to shine. It’s about being around people who bring out your brightness and you bring out theirs. It’s about building teams and communities that use their collective brightness to change the world.
