What is your Next Chapter?

Apr 24, 2019

Show Notes 

On today’s podcast I plan to be perhaps be just a bit controversial by challenging one of our society’s prime objectives—personal growth. In truth, this may be a follow up to the show we did with my son on the tension between personal improvement and personal contentment.

My question, I guess, is this: does there ever come a time in life when you are done growing? Do you ever get to “arrive” and be done with this exhausting effort “to be the best you, you can be?”

I can put the blame on my thoughts on author Neil Gaimen who wrote this in his poem After Silence:

And somebody has to say that we
never need to grow forever
. That
we, like the trees, can reach our full growth,
and mature, in wisdom and in time,
that we can be enough of us…
Who’ll whisper it:
We’re done. We grew. Enough.

Neil Gaimen struck on chord that has been ringing in my ears for some time now: that our obsession with “growth” comes from an almost unhealthy dissatisfaction with ourselves. 

Why do I have to be the best Charlie I can be? Why can’t I be, just Charlie?

I heard an interview with B.B. King when he said to up and coming blues guitarists: “Quit trying to be the best one, just try to be a good one.”

My special guest today is Terry Goldfarb, a networking special who is going to show us “how you will never have to look for a job again.” Now In know that is a bold statement but after spending a couple hours with Terry I get it.

First of all, finding a new job is much more about relationships than it is about resumes. Not what you know as much as who you know.

With more than 40 years experience in leading people in search of a new job, Terry Goldfarb comes with boatloads of experience as well a creative ideas about the whole job search process.

Terry is a networking specialist that puts a whole different spin on networking and finding a job… at any age. Her process works… if you take the time to work it. It is not easy, but it is virtually guaranteed—well at least to the degree you can guarantee anything.

So, without any further introduction let’s bring on Terry Goldfarb about proven, creative, and effective new ideas about how to find a job.

Show Notes 

Today my guest is our friend, Terry Hershey and do we have a bold subject today: It called “Instructions for Living.” Don’t worry; we’re using Instructions taken from another author. Instructions from Terry and me… hmmm.

For those of you that are not familiar with Terry Hershey, he is the author of 17 books (with a new one coming out in the Fall), he’s a sought after public speaker, and an award winning landscape architect of English Country Gardens.

In January of this year, one of America’s greatest contemporary poets, Mary Oliver, died. Terry and I plan to chat about a line from the poem “Sometimes” in her latest collection titled Red Bird. The line from the poem is this: “Instructions for Living a Life: Pay Attention, Be Astonished and Tell About It.”

So let’s bring on Terry Hershey to chat about paying attention, being astonished, and then telling about it.
