What the Hell is the Meaning of Life?

Perhaps the foundational belief that most undergirds the career we choose and how we approach our work is, "What is the meaning of life?" Is it work-life balance? Contribution? Happiness?

On the March 1, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, my wife Barbara Nemko and I discuss the book, "The  Meaning of Life." It profiles 100 people's conceptions of the meaning of life.

Plus, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, we can usually help.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on kalw.org. The podcast is available for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on this page.

Marty Nemko was called "job coach extraordinaire" by U.S. News and "The Bay Area's best career coach" by the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
