OK, so that’s not really how Conan answers the question posed to him in the classic B-movie fantasy action thriller Conan the Barbarian. Instead he talks about crushing enemies, seeing them driven before you and so on and so on. In short, his is a very PubTheo kind of answer.
In all seriousness though, the question is a good one, regardless of the answer. And as we get closer to the end of what I think we can all acknowledge has been one of the most, if not the most, challenging year in recent memory it’s a nice opportunity to take stock. And it feels like it’s been a long time since we built a conversation around some Hollywood-style inspiration.
So in our conversation this week, let’s answer the question put to Conan: What is best in life? But let’s dig deeper. Is this a question you’ve ever been asked, or asked yourself? In fact, when is the last time, if ever, that you thought about what was really best in life? What frames or the way you think both about the question but more importantly your answer? What are the influences that lead you to say, “This is best in life”?
And because I just came across this and don’t want to forget it, here’s the ice breaker question we’ll start with: What is the right age to tell children the truth about Santa? Or do you keep the fiction going as long as possible and let them discover it on their own?
