Thriving to 100 (eBook)
Ever more of us are living healthier and longer lives. Few consider the world-altering implications. Avivah Wittenberg-Cox brings her insight to the topic of longevity and its implications for careers, couples, companies and countries. Using her trademark short, pithy visuals, she challenges us, whatever age we may be, to look at life in four quarters, each with their own priorities and pacing. She outlines the skills one needs to transition gracefully (rather than in crisis) from one to the next, invites us to see parallels between the 20s and 60s, and to consider the second half of life not as recreation, but re-creation. Age will be to the 21st century what gender was to the 20th. A huge, global demographic shift impacting… everything. Get ready, get aligned, get ageing.
