The Legacy Project

By Marianne Brigola, Career Fellow 2011-2012

Professor Karl Pillemer of Cornell University has been working on a fascinating project over the past few years entitled The Legacy Project.  He has been interviewing and talking to over 1,500 people across the country over the age of 70 to answer the question “What are the most important lessons you have learned over the course of your life?”

New book that is based on the Legacy Project research

From love and marriage, to work and career, and even values to live by, the responses and advice given by these participants is amazing! From a former athlete who ended up in a career as a coach and recruiter: “The most important thing is to be involved in a profession that you absolutely love, and that you look forward to going to work everyday.”
