This week is a rebroadcast of one of my favorite episodes from 2019. I am speaking with Forbes Publisher Rich Karlgaard, the author of Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement.
I am releasing this episode the week of the US Thanksgiving holiday. Rather than not publishing an episode, I thought I would dig back into the archives and rebroadcast one of the most impactful episode of 2019. If you listened to this episode 3 years ago, I suggest you listen to it again.
Rich Karlgaard published Late Bloomers: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement. There is so much good stuff in here about how society worships early achievers yet many of us are late bloomers. We do not find ourselves until later in life but we spend many of our earlier years preparing to become the success we find later in life.
You can read his bio:
Rich Karlgaard is the publisher of Forbes magazine and the author of LATE BLOOMERS: The Power of Patience in a World Obsessed with Early Achievement. He is also a lecturer, pilot, and the author of four acclaimed previous books. A self-proclaimed late bloomer, Rich had a mediocre academic career at Stanford (which he got into by a fluke), and after graduating, worked as a dishwasher, night watchman, and typing temp before finally finding the inner motivation and drive that ultimately led him to his current career trajectory.
