Special thanks to our good friend Denny Locascio of Impact Fitness in Tampa, Florida for turning us onto Seth's eight-minute talk here!
Seth talks about the importance of the stories we tell ourselves, how they're fused with memories of our past and how to matter to other people. How can we matter to others? By connecting people with a story they care about and one they'll tell others about.
Denny's timing in sending me the link to Seth's video this morning is uncanny. I'm in the process of reading Marci Alboher's book The Encore Career Handbook. I'd just written about how Gen-Y can go into espionage mode in order to enhance their career, by using Marci's book. But as I got up from my reading chair this morning, I grabbed the Encore book with the intention writing a little bit more.
Marci's chapter titled Back to School screams, just screams of the methodology I am attempting to etch out in Standing Out in a Sea of Sameness. Most people will not put to task and do the exploratory work described in the stories Marci weaves into this chapter. These most people, constitute the Sea of Sameness. The first component of Standing Out is to do this work.
So Marci's style of educating us through stories and the importance Seth places on stories compelled me this morning to tell you about both of them. Their stories matter to me and they'll matter to you.
I've been thinking long and hard on who The Encore Career Handbook might not pertain to. I've already mentioned how important it can be to younger folk and it's a no-brainer for those over fifty and considering something more meaningful to do in the encore years of their lives. That only leaves those who are approaching fifty. Let's think about that. Here's a guide that helps you prepare to enrich your encore years. Do you want to be like everyone else when you get older? Or do you want to Stand Out?
