Podcast 326 – Finding meaningful work in a post-career world
In this episode, I speak to Bruce Feiler. Bruce is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers, including LIFE IS IN TRANSITIONS, THE SECRETS OF HAPPY FAMILIESAnd Council of the Fathers. In this episode we discuss his latest book, THE SEARCH: Finding meaningful work in a post-career world. As you can hear me say during our discussion, this is the most actionable book on this subject I have ever read and I have had many authors of books on this subject on this podcast.
Here is part of Bruce’s biography from his website BruceFeiler.com
BRUCE FEILER is one of America’s most thoughtful voices on contemporary life. He is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers, including LIFE IS IN TRANSITIONS, THE SECRETS OF HAPPY FAMILIESAnd Council of the Fathers. His three TED Talks has been viewed more than four million times and he teaches the TED course HOW TO MANAGE LIFE TRANSITIONS. His latest book THE SEARCH: Finding meaningful work in a post-career world is a bold new roadmap to finding meaning and purpose in the workplace, based on insights from hundreds of life stories of all occupations and backgrounds.
Bruce takes a first-hand approach to his work and is known for living the experiences he writes about. His work combines timeless wisdom with current knowledge to encourage people to live more meaningful, passionate and joyful lives. LIFE IS IN TRANSITIONS describes his journey across America, collecting hundreds of life stories and exploring how we can purposefully and skillfully navigate the growing number of life transitions in life. “One of those books that fits so deeply with the zeitgeist that you end up underlining the whole book,” wrote Arianna Huffington Thrive globally. “Bruce Feiler is the perfect person to accompany us on this journey.” The book was a New York Times Top 10 bestseller.
For two decades, Bruce has explored the intersection of families, relationships, health and happiness. His book THE SECRETS OF HAPPY FAMILIES collects best practices from some of the country’s most creative minds. The book has been featured in World News, GMA and TODAY and has been published in excerpts in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Parade. THE COUNCIL OF THE FATHERS describes how, in the face of one of life’s greatest challenges, he asked six friends to support his young daughters. The book was featured in PEOPLE, USA Today and Time and became a CNN documentary hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta and an NBC drama series.
Bruce is a longtime columnist for The New York Times and now writes the popular newsletter THE NONLINEAR LIFE. He has appeared in numerous publications including The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review and Gourmet, where he won three James Beard Awards. He is a frequent commentator on radio and television. A former circus clown, he was the subject of a Jay Leno joke and a JEOPARDY!
