How to Achieve a Long Fulfilling Career, WaPo, 3/4/21 – Become a “Wisdom Worker”

This piece by Matt Fuchs in today’s Washington Post (3/4/21) resonated with me. As someone who is nearing the encore period of my career, the notion of “wisdom workers” and what they seek and how they embrace their work is something to be modeled.

If you are approaching your work encore stage or know someone who is, this piece is worth reading.
