Life Choices & Learning To Appreciate Them - Josh Packard Ph. D.
There are those moments in life, when you reach the crossroads. You stand there wondering which way to go, and you make your life choice. Then, you wonder, "What might have happened if you had chosen differently?" Even if you don't regret your choice, you may just be curious about what might have happened. Whether it's your choice of career, the mate you settle down with, or following passion, the wonder of what if is always an interesting way to go into some self introspection. Josh Packard, a sociologist, professor and researcher at University of Northern Colorado, and a guy I met a couple of years ago at National Speakers Association, posed the question, "What if..." and that's why we're bringing you this inquisitive podcast today, so that you can look at the "What If's..." of your life and appreciate where you are and what you've accomplished as a 40 Plus guy!
