The Covid pandemic is still with us, even as people are eager to return to normal. Marshall Goldsmith talks about how a virtual community he created thrived in the pandemic.

Nashville, TN (Newsworthy.ai) Sunday Jul 10, 2022 @ 7:00 AM Pacific —
In a blog post related to personal responsibility, adapted from his new book The Earned Life, the renowned leadership expert and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith talks about how the virtual Life Plan Review community thrived virtually during the pandemic.
Goldsmith writes: “A primary benefit of the Life Plan Review is this: In a matter of weeks, you’ll notice how brutally it forces you to confront the tough question, ‘What did I actually do this week to make progress on my goals?’ Given our tendencies for superior planning but inferior doing, this is a question we prefer to avoid. The Life Plan Review removes that option.”
Although people are returning to something like normal life, the Covid pandemic is still with us. Federal health officials recently said that as many as one-third of Americans live in areas where Covid-19 infections are so high that people should consider wearing a mask in indoor public settings. Over the past week, there has been a large increase in the spread of the coronavirus and hospitalizations. The seven-day average of hospital admissions from Covid has risen almost 20% over the week before. We still need to be wary of how we go about our daily lives.
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.
