#217 - The great midlife crisis

17 mins | May 24, 2022

Today's episode from 25th May 2022. During the pandemic younger, lower-paid workers drove the 'Great Resignation', but now as it enters its second year, we hear how older, higher-paid workers are increasingly quitting their jobs in search for less tangible benefits like meaning and flexibility. Then later, good or bad, our feelings colour how we see people. We show you how you can break the perpetual perception cycle. The economic climate suggests that many would fall back on their jobs for a sense of security, but evidence shows that older, more tenured people are increasingly quitting their jobs. But why? For Vox, Rani Molla reflects on why this new age group are starting a new career chapter. In psychology, a “trapped prior” is a perception of reality that’s heavily influenced by past experiences. These can often weigh heavily on our relationships. Nir Eyal provides ways to release your trapped priors and refresh your perceptions of people. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
