What Are You Working For?

Last night my daughter had her first lacrosse game (they won 16-3) so I didn’t have time to write a blog post in the evening. I’m taking just a few minutes to write this morning before leaving for work.

While making my smoothie and getting my stuff together for the day, I listened to Todd Henry’s latest podcast in which he interviewed best-selling author and coach Dr. Marshall Goldsmith about his new book The Earned Life: Lose Regret, Choose Fulfillment. The focus of the book is that success and happiness aren’t dependent on each other and how so many self-help books that include “success” stories fail to mention the people who did the same thing and didn’t succeed (Goldsmith tasks about the best-seller The Secret as an example of this). The conversation also delves into the overall message that commercials give us about life, including the ads for cryptocurrency (and I agree completely with what Todd Henry says about it).

This is yet another book that has been added to my to-read list.
