Wise Words from 1,000 Elders

Thought I’d share this article with you all in case you haven’t stumbled upon it yet… a new book about life lessons from those at the latter end of their own ‘wise routes’.

The book – “30 Lessons for Living” – “offers practical advice from more than 1,000 older Americans from different economic, educational and occupational strata who were interviewed as part of the ongoing Cornell Legacy Project.” This NY Times article lets us in on a few of enlightening trends about marriage, careers, aging, regrets, and happiness.

Advice From Life’s Graying Edge on Finishing With No Regrets

I also really love this video about success (connected to the NY Times article):

Hope everyone is off to a 2012 full of adventure, love, and ever wider eyes.

  1. Thanks for this post about my book. Frances is incredible – a real inspiration to me. Many of the elder see life as an adventure, and encourage younger folks to take risks. And great site here!

  2. Thanks very much Karl! We’re thrilled about your project and have a copy of the book on the way (by mail since the local bookstore ran out of copies!). Thanks for your incredible work and for visiting the blog!
