” The Big Shift” a book by Mark Friedman speaks to those of us looking into the future and wanting more of what we have and maybe more on our terms. We don’t want to give up working entirely, but want flexibility and passion to coincide. The book refers to our ” Encore” phase of life and claims the challenge for us now is to identify the sweet spot.
Friedman define this spot as the intersection between different points in time. He likens this to an “Indian Summit” and claims humans don’t realize their capacity until the shadow reached Eastward! This point in time ignites a sense of urgency within us and we reflect on making the best use of our time left to live. Losing friends and family makes this feeling even more pronounced and results in a “focusing impact”.
Do you think you have reached your Indian Summit yet? Let me know.
