Who Wants To Thrive?

Summing up a life that’s living up to its full potential doesn’t get any better than the word “thriving”. I love this word because it speaks to something much bigger than typical life goals like career, health, possessions, weight loss, or money. Thriving reflects those qualities, but mostly it reflects how you experience them. A true state of thriving never occurs in the absence of an individual that is honoring their life.

Thriving is a strong and uncommon state of Aliveness; ...

Unless You Say No

I’m fairly certain I’m not alone in getting a little overwhelmed by the sheer volume of messages arriving in my email inbox daily. I decided to take stock recently and make a mental note of the different sources for emails addressed to me on any given day. I discovered that nearly all of them were marketing messages of some kind.

The vast majority of my email is coming from companies, small and large, all eager to make a ...

The Importance Of Importance

In the ever-evolving practices for managing my life, I find that I have different priorities than most. It seems that I have little interest in the common goal of being more efficient, or maximizing my productivity, or accommodating other people’s schedules, or most of the other priorities labeled as good “time management”. I am far more interested in what makes my life more enjoyable and interesting first, and as exclusively as possible.

In that process I’ve always had the ...

Harmless Life-Antidotes

As you know, we promote the umbrella concept “Quality Of Life” as a first-line strategy (details here), but for some people, the act of creating uncommonly high levels of that quality is actually so simple that it doesn’t seem like they’re doing enough. What a nice problem to have, huh? Just to address this briefly I would say that it’s quite alright, in fact preferable, that universal QOL practices are the only strategy you employ. That ...

What Does It Mean To Thrive

Here’s some thoughts that ought to help set the stage for the creation of a spectacular 2nd half of life: The primary goal of life is to die with no regrets. In other words, causing your life to thrive today and always. How is that different than what you’ve always done? The difference is in the definition of “thrive”.

This is not a passive approach, but an aggressive one. I’m not here to help you make excuses for why your ...

Never Say Retire

I’m not sure where the concept of retirement came from; I’m only guessing that it was never part of the vocabulary prior to 70 or 80 years ago. This notion that we could step out of the mindless machinery that our careers have become and still survive financially is a good notion I suppose, but it begs the question of why we ever allowed ourselves to be sucked into that machinery in the first place. Also, the concept ...

Natural Anti-Aging

Before you read on, ask yourself how you would characterize another kind of anti-aging. If you can’t quickly and easily describe the other kind including examples, just realize that this uncertainty will make you vulnerable to making some misguided choices for maximizing and extending your life. Then, read on, because this article will clear that up once and for all. It’s a very valuable distinction to have.

Before we talk about any kind of anti-aging, the ...

Still Not Optional

That may seem like a fairly obvious statement to you, but that truth does not often find its way into practice for far too many of us in the second half of life. Even if it sounds like a principle you already embrace, I encourage you to read on; there is still something in this article for you.

During my years of health coaching I realized how many people over 50 who lay claim to being healthy believe that ...

Age, Minus The Number

How do we make sense out of the observation that humans decline in the capacity for life-engagement faster and farther than what is ideal and possible given our state of knowledge on the subject. I’m on a mission to unravel this curiosity, and create ideas and environments that supports maximizing quality of life beyond 50. The goal of course is to provide that ultimate road map for maximum, not merely acceptable, “aliveness” for as long as our lives ...

Which Longevity Did You Choose?

When the conversation is about health and how to improve it, we can inadvertently cheapen the concept of health if we don’t expect that one of the outcomes will also be longevity. But if our strategy for health—indeed our entire concept of it—consists mainly of engaging with the medical community, we have just turned our backs on the purest form of health there is, along with the most powerful path to quality longevity.

Barring some very specific ...
