“When you realize you’re no longer doing things to achieve something else later, then this question suddenly looks at you very aggressively: “This is your life, why is this your life?"   Chuck Klosterman is a best-selling author and journalist whose work focuses on popular culture in America. For years he wrote “The Ethicist” column for the New York Times Magazine and has also written for GQ, Esquire, The Guardian, The Washington Post and many more.   We talk about how to share your opinions and ideas without diluting your message (especially in our technological climate where it’s so easy to misconstrue meaning or take offense), how to tell whether or not someone is being authentic or wearing a mask when you first meet them, and if it’s better to become successful earlier or later in life. Chuck is the author of several books, including “But What If We’re Wrong? Thinking About the Present As If It Were the Past.”    Here’s an excerpt: “We must start from the premise that—in all likelihood—we are already wrong. And not “wrong” in the sense that we are examining questions and coming to incorrect conclusions, because most of our conclusions are reasoned and coherent. The problem is with the questions themselves.”   Visit Chuck’s Website, watch him on The Daily Show, or connect with him on Twitter. As always, you are welcome to submit your own questions at TheBetterQuestions.com, or on Instagram @thebetterquestions.
