Lesson 18 - We’ll Always Have Paris

For a writer who helped remake American literature by recasting it in his own macho image, Ernest Hemingway had a profound understanding of Paris. He grasped intuitively that Paris during the interwar years was a place one could live well on little money and produce great art. Hence why Hemingway and his wife Hadley found themselves in Paris in the company of other legendary 20th century artists like Gertrude Stein, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Ezra Pound, and John Dos Passos at a time when much of creative American life went underground due to Prohibition.

Hemingway’s genius was to remember it all and write about with characteristic pithy insight. He displayed a self-awareness that the moment he was living in, in that particular place, possessed a special magic, difficult to define but powerful enough to characterize an era - the Lost Generation. Hemingway’s essays are suffused with this fragile spiritual essence.

This podcast challenges leaders to be self-aware in their own spheres of influence and to communicate truth directly to their teams. Successful leaders who finish this podcast want to go to Paris themselves. But great leaders will build it here.
