It makes no difference if you are retiring or making any significant change to your life. We are all on the same path. So tune in and tag along as we give insights and inspirations on how you can create your own NEXT CHAPTER.

What is your Next Chapter?

Show Notes  

I’d planned today to do a “solo-sode, but as I began making notes for the show I thought of my dear friend, Terry Hershey and how much value he could add to the show. So 75 minutes before the show I invited him as a guest. And he agreed. Many thanks.

And this really is a good show!

My topic today is one I’ve lifted from a book by Richard Rohr’s titled Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life. In this show I’ll also refer to my theory of the 4 Seasons of Life, which will help navigate this 1st and 2nd half of life talk.

The cover of Rohr’s book reads. “In the first half of life we are naturally and rightly with establishing our identity—climbing, achieving and performing.” These are also what I call the Spring and Summer Years of Life 

“But,“ Richard Rohr continues, “those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey, one that involves challenges, mistakes, loss of control, broader horizons and necessary suffering that actually chocks out of our prior comfort zone.” Rohr goes on to say, “Eventually we need to see ourselves in a different and life-giving way.” Which, I might add, requires a significant “falling down” that leads to a path back upward that is genuinely self-fulfilling and moves us into the “Elder Status,” a status that has been highly regarded for history of mankind until about the last 60-70 years.

Show Notes 

Think about it Paul, what part of you comes out when your back is against the wall? Is it ugly or is it protective in a positive way? Do you lash out in anger, cry or whine, blame, or respond with some sort of passive (or aggressive) attack? Or, do you take the time to consider the best way to handle any given particular situation?

These are tough questions. Hard to answer and even harder to manage, because we all have these “protective archetypes or innate patterns” that actually govern our responses.

Today we are honored to have with us once again, Dena Crowder, who is a specialist when it comes to archetypes, In fact, she uses them masterfully in her own coaching process. I know. She’s my coach and mentor. In fact, Dena has done more with my anxiety in 6 weeks of coaching than my previous 25 years of therapy.

Before we begin, let me tell you just a bit more about Dena.

Dena Crowder is known as the most innovative strategist and consultant for creators and leaders.  She's worked privately with Grammy, Emmy and Humanitas prize winners, CNN Heros, founders, writers, performers, educators, and upstarts from every industry.

Dena’s Mission is to Redefine Power so that we use power for good as she believes that "Pure Power" is the capacity to directly influence… with wisdom and compassion.

Dena and I met at an online writer’s course and have maintained a bunch of contact since then. I am very excited to discuss Survival Archetypes with Dena Crowder.

Show Notes 

I find it shocking the number of people that tell me quite literally they “hate their jobs.” And if they don’t hate their job they are simply dissatisfied by so many things they do more than 40 hours each week. That’s a lot of time of dissatisfaction. Our special guest today is here to help us with that issue.

With me today is Mac Prichard, who’s the founder and publisher of Mac’s List, which is an online community of people looking for rewarding, creative, and meaningful work. More than 80,000 people a month visit the site, which includes a job board, a blog and courses about the nuts and bolts of job hunting and career management.

As a leading career expert, Mac helps people who are looking for a job during all of life’s transitions, which include Millennials getting a first job, midlife professionals switching sectors, parents getting back to work after raising a family, or even baby boomers who want to change careers.

Mac is also the author of Land Your Dream Job Anywhere and hosts a weekly podcast titled ‘Find Your Dream Job.’

Show Notes 

 My guest today is our good friend, Terry Hershey. If you’re a frequent listener of the show then you’re familiar with Terry, who is a regular guest. Terry is a prolific writer, conference keynote speaker, renowned landscape architect, and spiritual advisor.

Today, Terry and I plan to chat about Spring Cleaning: Getting Rid of Things that Don’t Work. You know we’ve all talked about Spring Cleaning for years now, although I think very few of us really do it anymore. Still, it’s a great concept. 

You know there just simply does come a time each year when you need to Clean House, not just physical stuff, but also tasks and habits and even relationships. We seem to live in a “yes-filled” world when the truth is many of us need to just learn the word “no.” 

I think that when faced with tasks and habits and relationships we also need to understand the important difference between either HELL YES or NO WAY!
