Learning after 50 years
Lifelong Learning will allow us to discover our potential for growth in the next stage of our lives. It is not anymore a matter of ‘if’ we want to keep learning or not after 50. We have to do it to reap the benefit this brings on the long run. Having a purpose in life is the key to reinventing ourselves.
Each year, median life expectancy increases significantly. The possibility to reach 90, even 100 years has become a reality. For the year 2050 the U.S. Census has predicted there will be over 2 million people over 100 years old in that country.
Now, if you are in the middle of your life, ask yourself, what are you going to do with all those extra years? One of the paradigms we associate aging with, is represented by some terrible words starting with D: decadence, degeneration, disability, debility, dependence, and deterioration.
