From the archives of this blog, some ruminations on midlife possibilities:
1. Work and the middle-aged brain (May 2010) — Hitting middle age often brings with it complaints of increasing forgetfulness and absent-mindedness, but perhaps there’s hope for us middle-agers after all.
2. Will our avocations save us? (May 2010) — Our avocations may well be our saviors, personally in terms of enriching our lives, and publicly in terms of contributing to the greater community.
3. Are You a Marathoner or a Sprinter? (July 2009) — Are you a marathoner or a sprinter when it comes to life and career achievements?
A popular and more recent post related to this topic is Does life begin at 46? (December 2010).
Editor’s Note: In addition to maintaining a list of articles that have remained very popular on this blog — see the Popular and Notable Posts page — every month or so I’m recycling relevant posts from more than a year ago. Hopefully they will be of interest to newer readers.
