A prolific writer, much of his recent work has centered around the topic of “nomadic professionalism”: the burgeoning trend of transient career lives that are rapidly becoming the new normal. How can individual professionals cope with the uncertainty of this gig economy? How can we bring our full selves to work—not because it will increase productivity or happiness, but because it will make us more alive?
