Selling In

In Other Words, September, 1998, p. 2

Once upon a time, the typical American found a job, made a living. That was "success." today the typical American may change jobs six times or more, wants a life not just a living, and is looking for "satisfaction."

A recent Newsweek article reported, "Half of all Americans would choose a different line of work if they had it to do all over again." It also referred to a growing trend, "selling-in"&md;giving up a successful career for a career that brings more satisfaction.
