[1 minute self-development] Are you suffering from age excusitis?

British writer Tony Parsons wrote a long, thoughtful and funny piece on the 'myth of the midlife crisis'. It's well good - check it out here (although be warned it's got some adult themes and fruity language).

So do you suffer from 'age excusitis'? Saying "I'm too old"? (Or "I'm too young".). If the answer is yes, and you're someone who's a bit susceptible to describing yourself as 'over the hill', here's an age excusitis equation for you.

  • Work out your remaining 'productive life'. So a 30 year old can work from 20 to at least 70 = 80% of productive life left? In this way you shift your perspective onto what's possible, rather than what's past.

I've just worked out my remaining productive life at 66%. Spring chicken, eh?

There's plenty more of the above in The Magic Of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.

Have a great week, and instead of counting your days - make your days count.
