Back In The 60s We Boomers Believed We Could Change The World


76 million strong, with one quarter of our lives yet to live, we Boomers are not retiring in the old sense of the word. Instead we are pioneering a new and productive life stage between work and old age, characterized by flexibility and choice rather than necessity and obligation.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to reinvent our lives and realize our true aspirations. We can focus on the things important to us and pursue them in our own good time. We may return to something we put aside in our youth, devote more time to things we could only do in our time off or explore new options. We can go back to school, start a new career or avocation, travel, devote our energies to solving problems and helping others, take up a sport, immerse ourselves in the arts or do all these things.

A return to our youthful ideals; to challenge the notion that material success is the key to satisfaction, live simply and green, take time to smell the roses, do our own thing, expand our minds, see the world, seek inner peace and peace for the world, will reawaken the dream that called to us so long ago and insure this time of life is our best yet.
