Monday night my wife and I went out to dinner with some good friends. Over dessert our conversation turned to men and their mid life crises’. This reminded me of a book I had read years ago while navigating my own mid life crisis. The final chapter of John Sterner’s “Growing Through Mid-Life Crisis” list seven valuable pointers for men. For years I had these helpful reminders pasted to my desk.
1. Stop Trying to Figure it All Out
2. Don’t Look Back
3. Enjoy Yourself
4. Improve Yourself
5. Commit Yourself to a Cause
6. Involve Yourself with Others
7. Face the Facts, You are Getting Older
It was amazing how many times one of these seven simple tips would be exactly what I needed. As a matter of fact, they still speak to me, maybe they’ll speak to you as well, enjoy.
