Why do some people start thinking and behaving ‘old’ when they reach a certain age? What is our potential for learning, growth, transformation and optimal health at fifty and beyond? And perhaps more importantly, how does our own self-limiting thinking get in the way of that potential? Why is retirement (often) bad for our health? What is the difference between purpose and calling and do we choose our purpose, or does it choose us? In this episode of TYP, Chip Conley and I explore all this and more. Chip is a New York Times best selling Author, award-winning Entrepreneur, Educator and stimulator of thought, who makes a great podcast guest. Along the way, we unpack some of the fascinating ideas in his book ‘Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder’, which is essentially a conversation about age and ageism in the workplace in which he liberates the term “elder” from the stigma of “elderly,” revealing the value of wisdom that can only be accrued through years on the planet. Enjoy.
