Focus on your strengths

This week has been full of articles on Marcus Buckingham's book, Live Your Strong Life. The research showing that women have become more and more unhappy and sadder as they get older over the past 40 years. The reasons behind it are both speculative, hypotheses, and anecdotal. Overall, however, Marcus believes if women focus on living their strengths they will be happier.  By the time you get to be 50 this seems like the correct rite of passage women need to embrace. We are too wise, too mature, and have seen too much to worry any longer about improving our weaknesses all the time. In fact, I think as we get older we just become more of who we already are, just more so. A toast to Marcus to remind us all to focus on our strengths to live a better life!
