This book is a call to action for over 40s to challenge the stereotypical view of being older and to get involved in demonstrating the value of human longevity.
Because, whether we work in a large or small organisation, a company we start or are homemakers, what we consider to be our most effective role, sooner or later, will no longer be needed in quite the same way. So, the big question is, what are we going to do with all the knowledge and ability we’ve got?
Assuming that ‘Old Fart-ism’ is not our preferred option, compared to:
For those of us in our 40s and of every decade beyond, we need to get busy:
A) Constructing our new career of ageing with intention and style,
B) Using our knowledge to learn more and accommodate change
C) Develop the confidence to create suitable alternatives for ourselves.
Because, I’m suggesting that, our ability to successfully combat ‘ageism’, is directly related to younger generations being able to witness the benefits of our longevity for us and for them.
This book uses about 30 examples to take a light-hearted approach to the serious problem of avoiding ‘Old Fart-ism’ thinking and behaviour.
If you decide to buy this book or get given it as a present, I do hope you will get in contact to tell me how your experiences stack up against the ideas in my book.
