Welcome to your moment to ROAR!
Issue # 03

Dear Friend,

Every Spring, we are reminded of new beginnings. It’s a season of new promises, as nature restores itself and it is a metaphor for how you too can find a new beginning by reimagining yourself at midlife.

When I check out my garden in the Spring (along with my pup, Hannah), it is also when I do some personal Spring cleaning! How is the year shaping up? Am I accomplishing what I set out to do for the year? Am I reviewing my 2022 life journal, something that I do the first week of every month to keep myself accountable to my goals? It’s a good time to make sure you are on track, as well as thinking about your long-term goals. Hopefully you are seeing some of the sprouts that you planted at the beginning of the year!

In your own life garden, nurturing your plans, pulling out the weeds and watering your dreams is critical. Many of you joined our first ROAR session with Peter Lichtenthal to learn about how you can start a second career at 50 or 60. You may have just started a new health and fitness regimen (I’m happy to announce that I’ll be a regular columnist in Men’s Health magazine starting this April). You might have decided to engage in lifelong learning (see “One More Thing” below) or started your new life layer!

Only the gardener can make his or her garden grow. Let 2022 be the year that your own garden flourishes. Happy Spring.

ROAR by the Numbers
It is estimated that over the next 20 years, there will be the largest generational transfer of wealth in the history of the world. The boomers and those older than them will have $60 trillion in assets that will be transferred to the next generations or spent in that period. Now is the time for the boomers to go back to their activist roots and put some of that money to work in ways that create social impact. Imagine the possibilities.

During a trip to Namibia, I got to practice my piloting skills over the famous Skeleton Coast, but took this picture when the other pilot took the controls! Everyone who has acquired this photo tells me that they turn to it for some visual meditation. Hope you will enjoy the moment and imagine yourself flying along with me.
