Becoming a Modern Elder
I was honored to be the finale speaker at the annual TEDxMarin a couple months ago. The video was just published and offers answers to some of the following provocative questions: What are the three 20th century life stage inventions and why hasn’t midlife been given the same public policy attention as the other two?
- Why is there such a gap between the personal and societal narrative on aging?
- What’s the difference between “elder” and “elderly” and why are “Modern Elders” an important new phenomenon in the workplace?
- What do midlife and the caterpillar to butterfly journey have in common?
- What are three practices we teach at the Modern Elder Academy that you could DIY at home?
