Here is a career-specific piece from a book that made the rounds earlier this year on what the wisest Americans have to tell us about living. Lovely.
1. Choose a career for the intrinsic rewards, not the financial ones.
2. Don’t give up on looking for a job that makes you happy.
3. Make the most of a bad job.
4. Emotional intelligence trumps every other kind.
5. Everyone needs autonomy.
