The new After 50 Lifestyle calls for more than money: it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. This book helps you plot your direction for the coming decades. The first step is to acknowledge where you are—reviewing your assets, both the tangible (e.g. finances, health, relationships) and intangible (e.g. unfulfilled ambitions and new intentions). Then self-reflective questions and exercises walk you through imagining your future, identifying skills you’ll need, and preparing for inevitable twists and turns along the way.
