The Earned Life

In The Earned Life, pioneering leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith shows us how to live our own lives—not someone else’s version of them. The key to living the earned life, unbound by regret, requires our commitment to a habit of earning and connecting it to something greater than the isolated achievements of our personal ambition.

Taking inspiration from Buddhism, Goldsmith implores readers to accept impermanence and avoid the Great Western Disease of “I’ll be happy when…”. He offers practical advice for shedding the obstacles, especially our failures of imagination, that prevent us from creating our own lives. With this book as their guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done.
