Are You Ready for Your Life Reimagined Moment?
Are you at a point in your life where you're asking, “What's next?” You've finished one chapter and you have yet to write the next one. Many of us face these transitions at midlife, but they can happen at any point. It's a time full of enormous potential, and it defines a whole new phase of life. It's called Life Reimagined.
Here is your map to guide you in this new life phase. You can use the powerful practices and insights—enhanced with online tools and exercises at AARP's LifeReimagined.org website—to help you uncover your own special gifts, connect with people who can support you, and explore new directions.
You'll be inspired by meeting ordinary people who have reimagined their lives in extraordinary ways. You'll also read the stories of pioneers of the Life Reimagined movement such as Jane Pauley, James Brown, and Emilio Estefan. They show us that this journey of discovery can help us find fulfillment in surprising new places.
One of the profound truths that underlies this book is the liberating notion that each of us is “an experiment of one,” free to find our own path in this new phase of our lives. No old rules, no outdated societal norms, no boundaries of convention or expectation. Let Life Reimagined help you discover your new life possibilities!
Life Re Imagined
This book is a great template for those of us baby boomers especially (but not exclusively)who are at a turning or pivoting point in our lives. What worked for us in our 40's and 50's may no longer be valid in our 60's and 70's. And since we are not our parents generation (living and working longer healthier lives) there is very little relevant advice out there on how to successfully navigate this phase of life.
This book and the authors "Get us" and in an organized and efficient way lay out an easy road map on how to help us in this transitional time. The layout of the book is logical, insightful and paradigm-shifting. It actually helped to change the way I think ( no easy task since I am very stubborn and skeptical by nature). I have recommended this book to everyone I know.
The genius of the book is that it gives you not just the tools to help you "re-imagine" your life but holds your hand every step (and I mean every step) of the way as you try to use them. It doesn't talk down to you but rather talks to you. It invites you to participate in your own journey. It reminds me of that old saying " if you want to feed a hungry man for one day, give him a fish--- if you want to make sure he will never be hungry again, teach him to fish!" So I invite all of you to read this book --- And HAPPY FISHING!
