Paul Wilkes is a writer, philanthropist, and founder of Homes of Hope India, building orphanages, schools and medical facilities for abandoned and neglected girls. He's the author of 21 books, most recently Your Second to Last Chapter: Creating a Meaningful Life on Your Own Terms. Wilkes will speak about his successes and failures in finding meaning in his life Wednesday evening, 4/26, at St. James Episcopal Church. The evening begins with a reception at 6:30pm; the talk begins at 7:00pm.
Wilkes says the driving force for him is to do "the next right thing," whatever that may be in any situation. Pursuing success for its own sake, he says, doesn't get a person to the desired destination.
Listen above to hear Wilkes talk about finding meaning in life regardless of circumstances; find extended conversation below.
