Courtney Martin on Redefining Measures of Success
Courtney Martin’s book, The New Better Off, is an attempt redefine our measures of success. As Courtney says, The New Better Off is realizing our quality of life is more determined by the quality of our relationships more than our individual achievements. Courtney is currently living in a co-housing community in Oakland, California, where people practice radical hospitality by dining together weekly, sharing homeownership activities and a helping each other when they need it. We discuss how the traditional 9 to 5 job structure created in the fifties for people without care taking responsibilities, doesn’t work in the world we live in today, and thoughts on how we can transform our work and life structures and organizations to adapt to the exploding number of freelancers. We also talk about the importance of community vs expecting your immediate family to meet all your needs. Courtney encourages us to “reject the tired narratives about success,” and how our motives and lives change when we focus on community vs our own private lives. If you aren’t the co-housing type, Courtney also shares ideas on how to easily integrate ritualistic practices in our life. Ideas such as monthly hikes with friends or community dinners with several families allow us to prioritize the relationships in our lives and the things that make us happiest.
