I think this is terrific. Career resilience resonates with me strongly because the process of building a career - especially one that is personally meaningful - involves many uphill climbs and setbacks. You have to be willing to get back up and try again and again, working toward a life that you can envision for yourself but that may, at the moment, seem woefully out of reach. Great post!

Thanks, Rebecca-so glad to hear that this resonates with you, too! The more I've thought about this and talked with other people about it, the more it seems to me that resilience is what most of us need to have. What I think is challenging for many of us is creating the right patterns to support resilience. Like most things in life, we often act in crisis mode, so that when we lose our jobs or find that we need to make a change, then we're more willing to work on the patterns. But what about when our careers seem healthy? It's like getting people to live a healthy lifestyle--sometimes a lot easier said than done.
