Last week I had a brilliant conversation with Tim Drake, author of a new book called Generation Cherry.
We were chatting about the book for an episode of my podcast, Informed Choice Radio, which you will be able to hear shortly.
Tim is in his seventies, and still sees himself as a promising youngster who intends on thinking and behaving like someone much younger.
He is putting more into life, and getting more out of it.
This article from The Hollywood Reporter, which is accompanied by some fantastic portrait photography, reinforces a growing opinion about stopping work to retire; why on earth would anyone want to do a thing like that?!
There's a reason why the entertainment business has so many active nonagenarians. They have a sense of purpose and love what they do.
It's something we should all consider as we make our own plans for 'retirement', whatever it is that means these days.
Purposeful and highly creative people actually live longer than everyone else, says a growing body of research. Maybe that’s why all of these nonagenarians have no plans to stop working.
