marciHappiness interview: Marci Alboher.
I'm so excited for my friend Marci Alboher. She has a terrific new book coming out on December 18, The Encore Career Handbook: How to Make a Living and a Difference in the Second Half of Life. It's an excellent guide for people hitting midlife who are wondering what to do next.
In honor of the new book, I'm re-posting her happiness interview from a few years ago. In the time since it ran, Marci has been immersed in the world of "encore careers"-second acts for the greater good. She just wrote a great piece for the New York Times: Switching Careers at Midlife To Make a Difference.
She has so many interesting things to say, especially about the relationship between happiness and work.
Gretchen: What's a simple activity that consistently makes you happier?
Marci: Talking a long walk in the early morning hours.
What's something you know now about happiness that you didn't know when you were 18 years old?
