It’s a Pivot, Not a Crisis

It’s a Pivot, Not a Crisis

I recently finished Jerry Colonna’s book “Reboot: Leadership and the Art of Growing Up,” and it has transformed my thinking about the period of transition I’m going through in my life. I recently wrote about what I'm lovingly calling my “midlife existential crisis,” and I explained that following a period of one challenge, and one tough blow after another, I went through a career upheaval that left me reeling.

It led me to spend several months consuming memoirs of people - mostly women - who reached similar points in their lives for one reason or another. The insights gained from these authors have definitely improved my way of thinking towards this “crisis.”
