Comparison is the Thief of Joy. Here’s the Antidote. (Episode 1)

5 years ago I published the career strategy book, Not Your Parents’ Workplace. In it, I share the challenges I faced and the lessons I learned during the 2008 financial crisis and beyond. Within a year of graduating college, I worked at three companies, enduring the largest bankruptcy in history at one and getting laid off by another. It was a brutal period I’ll never forget.

We’re now in another period of economic uncertainty. Many have lost jobs and others are worried about what the future holds. In light of this, I’ve decided to try something new. I’m kicking off a series where I share stories and lessons from Not Your Parents’ Workplace as well as insights I’ve had over the last five years.

Here’s the first video. I’d love to hear what you think and if there are specific topics you’d like covered in future ones!
