The new book from Robert Christiansen, The Bug in Our Brain offers a unique perspective on self-worth and how it can accelerate or sabotage success.
The world’s definition of success is constantly changing and we’re not sure as to where we should put our efforts. For decades we’ve been told to go to college, get a degree, secure a job with a great company, work, save, and hopefully retire to a beautiful sunset of a life well lived. Unfortunately, that’s not how things are working out. A college degree does not equate to a great paying job, the life expectancy of a Fortune 500 company is 18 years – down from 61, and retirement funds are not protected from runaway Enron behavior. The ground beneath our feet is constantly shifting. Technology is moving faster than ever, disrupting every industry, turning long-standing careers on their heads. The tried and true definition of success is gone, never to return in color or form. We are left without a rudder.
