The New Roadmap of Life.

May 29, 2023

Dr. Laura Carstensen and the Stanford Center on Longevity are doing an in-depth, multi-disciplinary study on A New Map of Life. Here are their six principles to guide long lived societies:

  1. New roles and opportunities must be created so that people experience purpose, belonging, and worth at all stages of life
  2. Education is a lifelong pursuit
  3. Working longer will occur in multigenerational contexts
  4. Money. Opportunities to earn and save must be available throughout life to ensure financial security
  5. Advances in the science of aging must be distributed broadly in the population
  6. Physical health and the prevention of disease is critical to achieving the promise of longevity

I dropped into the MEA garden art studio this week to draw what I think is the new roadmap of life (different from this Stanford initiative) and captured it on a short video at the end of this post. If there’s one certainty about our modern life path, it’s that learning how to navigate the natural transitions has become a life skill that is vastly more important today than it was when I was born in 1960.

This is why our MEA Online program offers you a new roadmap in our 8-week course in small cohorts dedicated to helping you address your personal, professional, relationship, or pandemic transitions. We're wrapping up our current session with hundreds of students from more than twenty countries, and we've recently opened enrollment for our next course that begins on June 05th.

If reexamining the first half of your life with a goal of setting new coordinates to navigate the road ahead sounds appealing, we believe you’ll deeply appreciate the personal and professional development you will get out of MEA Online.
