Cost or Investment: How Do You See It?

Maybe you watch programs like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, read certain glossy magazines or even catch the occasional beer commercial. If such sources were all you knew about the world, you would conclude that life is perfect and effortless, a never-ending party without a cloud in the sky.… Read More

The Art of Doing Nothing

Even in the second halves of our lives, we still have things to learn. One lesson I have found very challenging is how to do nothing. Being idle is not a skill that was needed in much of our lives to date – quite the opposite. Time and energy were… Read More

The Aging of Aquarius: New Book Ignites Passion and Purpose

Baby boomers and Generation X that follows them are now in range of retirement, and books about aging and the post-work life are proliferating. Most are really depressing. They tell us how much money we’ll need (lots!) when we are at an age where increasing income or wealth is not… Read More

Resilience Through Hope, Despair and Forgiveness

A wag once said that the only one who really likes change is a wet baby, yet our lives are filled with continuous, dramatic and ever accelerating change. What we learned at our grandparents’ knees half a century or so ago no longer fits the 21st century world. When our grandchildren… Read More

Make Shifting Your Priorities a Priority

One fun fact: if you plan to live to 120, you do not have to be middle aged until you are 60. Even so, most of us are in or are getting close to the second half of our lives. With more time behind us than in front of us,… Read More

What I Learned from Lost Luggage

The long awaited river cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg began with flight changes and delays, but the coach to take us to our boat was waiting for us at the Moscow airport. Unfortunately, my luggage was not. By the time we waited until the last possible moment, explored all… Read More

Where to #MeToo Movement?

At some time in our lives, though less frequently as we mature, most have endured sexual harassment. In some cases, it was major, dramatic and undeniable. In far more cases, it was just some demeaning thing that we used to consider part of the landscape–patting, put-downs, pornographic pictures, propositions. You… Read More

Second Act Success: What They Didn’t Teach in Business School

Prime Women are definitely not rocking chair ready. Even after we leave our day job or full time professional practice, we want to do something more than just play golf and travel. Sometimes, it is continuing what we did before in a more part-time mode. Oftentimes, it is starting and… Read More

Staying Youthful is Easy if You Take Care of These 5 Things

Can we retain in the second half of life the good things we enjoyed in the first half? The answer is mainly, yes. Even though we are never going to be 17 again (and would we want that?) we can continue to look good with an attractive hair style, a… Read More

An Alternative to Turkey: Tourtiere Style Savoury Pie

The holidays are upon us, a time of celebration and feasting. It is hard to imagine celebrating anything without food and, at this time of year, long standing traditions dictate what that food shall be. In almost all cases this includes a turkey or other bird. However, as 2017 turns… Read More

Secret to a Happy Life: When I’m Hungry, I Eat. When I’m Tired, I Sleep.

When asked the secret to his calm and happy life, a wise guru replied: When I’m hungry, I eat. When I’m tired, I sleep. The answer may seem trite to the point of being trivial. It might even generate annoyance in those of us who are less placid than the… Read More

What’s in Your Wallet? The Future of Digital Currency

Stand in line at a coffee shop and watch people paying for their drinks and snacks. One person slips a card into a machine. Another customer waves or taps a card in the vicinity of the machine. A third just holds up a phone and a fourth just grabs a… Read More
