Marshall Goldsmith Shows How a Life Plan Review Creates Personal Growth
Coworking spaces are returning, as more people who have worked from home are choosing to work outside the home. Marshall Goldsmith talks about how reviewing your life periodically can be a motivator for growth.
“The Life Plan Review measures how hard you try, taking into account lapses rather than steadfastness, and the likelihood that you will often fall short of perfection.”

In a blog post related to personal accountability, adapted from his new book The Earned Life, the renowned leadership expert and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith talks about how reviewing your life periodically can be a real motivator for continuing growth.
Goldsmith writes: “The Life Plan Review measures how hard you try, taking into account your lapses rather than your steadfastness. It takes into account the likelihood that you will fall short of perfection most weeks. How much fallibility, denial, and inertia you are willing to accept in your life and what you will do about it, is solely up to you. The Life Plan Review asks only that you pay attention to your level of trying. There is no earning without heroic effort. And then, like a trainer demanding one more set of crunches, it demands one more thing: You must share your results with other people — in a community — not only to recite numbers, but to compare notes and help one another.”
Coworking spaces are hot again. The pandemic put a real dent in coworking spaces, as people worked from home and feared close personal interactions. But a new raft of startups is looking to help companies save money by using temporary spaces. WeWork recently said that 501,000 members signed up in the first quarter, which is over 100,000 more than in the same period last year. Other coworking space companies are emerging, with different payment and rental models, to meet a growing demand. People are examining what they need and are acting accordingly.
In The Earned Life Goldsmith uncovers the source of today’s existential crises, including regrets that stem from choices that irrevocably alter our lives, reroute destinies, and haunt our memories. These are particularly timely themes today.
With Goldsmith’s book as a guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done—even in a world full of inescapable unfairness and curveballs—and live an earned life that is fulfilling in the long run.
