"80 is the new 60", "You're only as old as you feel", "You can't teach an old dog new tricks" and on and on. Or as Martin Amis - the British Author - once wrote “And meanwhile time goes about its immemorial work of making everyone look and feel like shit.”
In one way or another we all face it. Our next podcast guest, Carl Honoré, faced his ageist existential crisis at age 48 when he realzed he was the oldest player on his local hockey team.
Society worships, as Carl put it, "the cult of youth" in work and in society in general, but we do not have to give into it and we can live our best lives as we age. Carl Honoré and I discuss living our best lives at every age in the next podcast, dropping later this week.
