Boe Workman argues that many of us 50+ are living a revolution… determined to leave our mark on the world. “We want to disrupt traditional aging and spark new solutions that will allow us to choose how we want to live as we age“
Yes, we want to be more independent, with more intimacy and fun, And yes, more legacy building. We want to lead a richer, more self-sufficient life as we age. But (and it’s a big ‘but’), are we constrained by a cultural view that aging means deterioration and dependence?
Boe is the Director of CEO Communication at AARP and has co-authored several books that shake up some outdated beliefs about aging. He recently co-authored a book with Jo Ann Jenkins, AARP’s CEO, called Disrupt Aging: A Bold New Path to Living Your Best Life at Every Age, well worth the read.
Will the opportunities of aging outweigh the negatives? Give a listen to find out.
