This Isn’t Your Father’s Future
The world has changed significantly in the last twenty years. The opportunities that drove the choices of previous generations simply aren’t available for young people today.
- Today, nearly three-quarters of Americans work because they need the money (part of why they change jobs every 20 months on average), while only 54% of college graduates are happy with their decision to invest in a degree.
- Only two out of three individuals will ever be able to retire! And A whopping 74 percent of workers plan to get a new job after they retire, according to the annual retirement expectations survey by the Employee Benefit Research Institute.
- As if that weren’t enough, more than half of employees think that your company is not doing a good job creating value for its customers. Which is in line with the 70% of workers who said they hate their jobs.
Clearly, we are all living in a new reality and our goal of creating a dream life in the modern world is going to require a new way of thinking.
So now what?
Author Jeff Lerner calls this old version the “system of systems” and he says that we need a new and better way to work in the modern world.
He explains how the failings of our education, employment, and retirement systems have created opportunities for people that they may not have known about. He will also show you how to take advantage of these opportunities. You will learn where these opportunities are, how to use them, and what to expect when you go through them.

There’s Nothing New — And Yet, Everything is New
If you’ve taken a few turns around the sun, you’ll notice that there’s not much new in Unlock Your Potential. I think what’s new is the pace of change and how we navigate this new world of work and life.
As I read through this book, I couldn’t help but reflect on the fact that we’ve had a MASSIVE disruptive event about every 3-5 years. If we expect a disruptive event every 3-5 years, is it disruption or is it normal?
So, what I loved about this book is Lerner’s focus on giving us a structure that will help us navigate constant change in a way that keeps us balanced and strong no matter what life throws our way.
