In a recent blog post related to living a fulfilled life, adapted from his new book, The Earned Life, the renowned leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith explores how we are reborn with every breath and how we’re constantly evolving.
Covid caused a lot of people to retire, but many have rethought it and gone back to work. Marshall Goldsmith explores our need to renew ourselves constantly.
Apart from the so-called Great Resignation, in which millions of people quit their jobs for other work, a huge number of Americans decided to retire from the workplace.
But then things changed—1.5 million retirees have re-entered the U.S. labor market over the past year, according to an analysis of Labor Department data, reported by the Washington Post. Given that people feel safer now that they’re vaccinated and boosted, they are eager to return to work, since they miss the challenges of day-to-day tasks. Some people who retired felt they were wasting their knowledge and decided to take advantage of the current moment to still be of service.
In The Earned Life, Goldsmith uncovers the source of today’s existential crises, including regrets that stem from choices that irrevocably alter our lives, reroute destinies, and haunt our memories. These are particularly timely themes today.
With Goldsmith’s book as a guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done—even in a world full of inescapable unfairness and curveballs—and live an earned life too fulfilling to dwell on “what ifs.”
