9781843332916: Midlife: A Manual

It should be the best time of our lives, with our careers on track, finances reasonably secure and the kids finally off to school. Yet, for far too many, midlife is also a period of confusing disillusionment, weighty responsibilities, and unanswered questions. There are answers and many of them are in this compassionate and eminently useful guide. Get the latest information on health issues affecting middle-agers, planning for retirement, fitness and sexuality, and caring for aging parents. Based upon interviews with men and women undergoing midlife transitions, the book includes helpful self-evaluations and realistic work plans, as well as extensive resources, including lists of organizations and agencies that can ease your growth into midlife.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From the New World of Work, Chapter 2: We are in the middle of a revolution in the workplace. Assumptions about loyalty and long-term commitment are giving way to rapid-fire decisions based on quarterly reports and the seismic shifts of a global market. The safety net is gone, and at times we are perplexed and a little frightened by it all. Living in "interesting times" can be a curse or a blessing. Oftentimes, it's both. Interesting times can mean dislocation - physical, social, emotional. They're times of test and challenge, of suffering and insecurity. Bedrock becomes sand under your feet. You will be tested. You will be asked to do more than you want to do, and you will be required to rise to the challenge or fall behind... You are in the middle of your life, and you never asked for this turmoil. That's the curse. Here's the blessing: You will discover new aspects of yourself. You will be given yet another chance to recreate your life, given all the knowledge you've gained over the past years.
