I have some questions about mastering midlife, starting with how do you do it?
When you’re young you learn from your parents and go to school to learn how to succeed. As you enter the different life stages in your 20s and 30s and even into your 40s there are all sorts of books, magazines, movies, and TV shows about how to do it well. And then…
I turned 50 this year and as I look around, the media and advertisements seem to think I should either be chasing the past glory days and clinging to my youth with a white knuckle death grip OR just quietly fading into the background.
No. No. Not a chance.
I have no desire to be 25 again (and it’s not going to happen even if I wanted it to) and I’m not ready to disappear. I have experience and wisdom I never had in my youth and feel like I’m just now starting to enter my prime.
The working title of this podcast was Louder Than Old Age. Perhaps not a great title, but it sums up my attitude. I want to turn my life up to 11 and finish it even better than I started. But to do that, I need to find out how. I’ll be talking with those who are bringing their passion, enthusiasm, and ambition into this next stage of life. People who will inspire and share ideas for mastering midlife and creating an amazing second half.
