Summary "There comes a time in our lives when we wonder, "What's next?"--when one chapter is finished and the next one has yet to be written. For many it happens at midlife, but it can happen at any point. It's a time full of enormous potential, a whole new phase of life. It's called Life Reimagined. Here is your GPS for navigating this new life phase. You can use the powerful set of tools, practices, and insights--enhanced online at AARP's Life Reimagined website--to help you uncover your own special gifts, connect with people who can support you, and try out new possibilities. Let Life Reimagined help you take the mystery out of change and take that exciting first step. You'll be inspired by meeting ordinary people who have reimagined their lives in extraordinary ways. You'll also read the stories of pioneers of the Life Reimagined movement such as Jane Pauley, James Brown, Emilio Estefan, and Chris Gardner. They show us that this journey of discovery can take us to some surprising and unexpected places. Life Reimagined says that each of us is an experiment of one. Each of us has the right and the responsibility to choose our own way, throughout all the years of our life. No old rules, no outdated societal norms, no boundaries of convention or expectation. Ultimately, Life Reimagined is more than a new phase of life--it's a mindset, a movement, and a moment of possibility that we are all living in"-- Provided by publisher.
"For hundreds of millions of people around the world, there is a new life phase between middle age and old age: life reimagined. This is the first book describing this new life phase and the new possibilities that it offers. Bestselling author Richard Leider and Fast Company cofounder Alan Webber are backed by 37-million-member AARP in bringing this message to the world"-- Provided by publisher.
