The final third of life

Statistically, if I am not already there, I must be getting mighty close!

Two thoughts for those of us at that phase of life:

  1. What if your most significant mission or your most important leadership task awaits you on the upper side of middle age? Despite the early signs of destiny and the early displays of passion, Moses was only clearly called by God on the threshold of the final third of his life. The final 40 years (they lived long, back then, even without statins) were his leadership years.
  2. This – from Bill George in Authentic Leadership:

The key to being fulfilled in the final third of life lies in our desire to continue to grow intellectually and in our hearts.
