Short term in the long run

In your second phase of life, you can still make long-term plans, see a bigger picture. It takes something a little more today. We’re living in complicated times. The impacts of the pandemic,economies and markets doing strange things and topsy turvy geopolitics. We’re living longer and we don’t want to retire because we still want to be an active part of our communities. We’re still, as we move into our 50’s, 60’s, even 80’s, able to think in the long-term.

Don’t retire. Change the world.

We see it all the time. “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” “I need to graduate by this age, mar- ried by that age, start a career, buy a house, have kids, be financially stable, etc.” “I’m too old for that.” “I’m not old enough.” It’s a lot of pressure! I call bull****—you’re exactly where you need to be right now and if there’s something you want to achieve, age is not your limit, your mind is. I faced age discrimination often when I chose to get
