My annual Thanksgiving observations (4 of 5)

I write this reflection every year on the LinkedIn changes and themes I deem most worthy of my comment. Any day’s a good day to give thanks, but this Thanksgiving 2021, hopefully at the tail end of the pandemic, I’ve accumulated these top 10 things to be thankful for (with optimism for 2022):

  • Thanks, LinkedIn, for providing me the background and speaking points to have been a guest on 12 podcasts this year, and to start my own in January 2022, entitled Encore! You 2.0 under the banner, interviewing boomers and beyond who have successfully and gratefully changed careers at their peak working years and how they did it.
  • Thanks LinkedIn, for enabling me to advise others on project-oriented consulting, a European river boat cruise and two rebranding projects, perhaps another to follow. Beyond 1:1 coaching and group training, this is the third leg of my business endeavor, and one I really enjoy. Who knows what’s next?

Blogmaster’s note: For the next few days I will add 2 more each day and take Thursday and Friday off.

  1. Hello Mark. Not sure that any of us really change careers. Those words are daunting. We develop or expand skill sets because of necessity or curiosity? The pandemic forced many of us to really step up our games and adopt unfamiliar technology a decade sooner than many of us ever dreamed. It continues to light fires under some of us to do more. In law, many systems were crawling pre-pandemic. Our entire legal system may now depend on how quickly we apply technology to historically slow processes. In-person is fun but law is serious business. Depending on the area of law, remote might enhance trust and merit.
