Episode 421: Marshall Goldsmith talks about The Earned Life

This is a conversation I’ve been wanting to have for years.

Marshall Goldsmith is someone I’ve been following ever since I got into the productivity space. His book “Triggers: Creating Behavior That Lasts – Becoming the Person You Want to Be” was especially formative for me and my work. So when I was asked if I’d like to speak with Marshall about his book “The Earned Life: Lose Regret, Choose Fulfillment” I jumped at the opportunity.

He is the only two-time winner of the Thinkers 50 Award for #1 Leadership Thinker in the World. He has been ranked as the #1 Executive Coach in the World, a Top Ten Business Thinker for the past eight years, and the inaugural winner of the Lifetime Award for Leadership by the Harvard Institute of Coaching. Dr. Goldsmith is the author or editor of 43 books, including many New York Times bestsellers (one that hit at #1), that have sold over 2.5 million copies, translated into 32 languages, and been listed bestsellers in 12 countries.

(Oh… and his books, “What Got You Here Won’t Get You There” and the aforementioned “Triggers” have been recognized by Amazon as two of the Top 100 Leadership & Success Books Ever Written.)

Marshall and I talked about what it mens to have a life that is earned, what he means when discussing the “satisfied” mind, the role willpower plays in your life, and how you can live “the earned life” starting today.

I had an absolute blast speaking with Marshall and I trust you’ll hear my enthusiasm throughout our conversation. I trust you’ll get a lot out of the conversation, too.
