ESLN @ NYLA: Resisting Achievement Culture
November 5, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Program Description: Meredith Farkas achieved more by age thirty than she’d expected in her whole career, yet she always felt she hadn’t done enough and didn’t deserve accolades. She didn’t realize at the time that she was chasing something that would never come from career achievement: a feeling of enoughness. Meredith will share the new path she forged when she stepped off the achievement treadmill and embraced a slower, more mindful, and gratitude-focused approach to work and life. She will discuss reflective practice, how to stave off burnout, how to decide when to say “no,” and how library workers at any level of an organization can move the culture toward one that values all different kinds of contributions.
