By 2015 some 77 million Americans will be fifty to sixty-nine years old: the first (and largest) generation in history to be so long lived. It is the first generation that will have to deal with the promises and problems of such an extended life span.

After 50 It's Up To Us, Developing The Skills And Agility We'll Need by George H. Schofield, PhD

Life after 50 will require some healthy reinvention.

George H. Schofield, PhD is the author of “After 50 It's Up To Us: Developing The Skills And Agility We'll Need”. A recognized expert in aging and employment, Schofield stresses that planning will be essential, the pace of world change is accelerating, and no person’s life happens entirely according to plan.

“After 50 It’s Up To Us” is about the skills and personal adaptability people need for successful aging, a high quality of life, great relationships, and personal satisfaction as they create their best possible futures

According to Schofield, thriving beyond the age of 50 requires developing new skills. Flexibility in dealing with change will be key. Being able to work with our own aging instead of against our own aging is essential for successful lifelong personal development.
