The young savages with 40 or 50

What is old, what is young? In our society there are different opinions and evaluations about what is old and what is young. And it shows how great the balancing act is - and how varied the range of possibilities.

In political careers, a mid-fortune is still a young poacher, a 30-year-old is considered a “greenhorn”. In the majority of the HR departments, on the other hand, dwindling performance and low flexibility are already attributed to employees or potential applicants in their mid-40s.

From the very beginning of our lives, we have the opportunity to discover completely new perspectives in many different ways, from dreams that we have perhaps not lived, from our memory-books - and with our experience to new, perhaps surprising ones Life plans.

But after we have answered the question of what opportunities are open to people in midlife, it now becomes specific: How can you use your potential? Because one thing is clear: Starting over is not a privilege of young people.

The older the better

It is our experiential knowledge that - cleverly used - empowers us in the middle of the world for the rapid classification of impressions and events - and gives us the power of precise judgment.

The renowned neuropsychologist Ernst Pöppel sums it up as “The older, the better”. It is true that the peaks of our attention, at which our Brain is ready to record something completely new, further apart than with the boys - Pöppel speaks of the slower metronome.

We combine differently in age

On the other hand, in the wave valleys between two so-called oscillation points, there are greater possibilities of combination for everything that bursts upon us. We process and combine different impressions more sustainably and draw from our experience.

Volotion - with deliberation and intensity

From will to implementation

A very big, important step in this “career” of will. Now the step in the implementation is only a small one.

This process can be learned and especially people in the middle of life can draw from the fullness of their already lived life and their power of judgment in the so important deliberation processes. The decisive impetus for the implementation of the careful Planning may lie in a finding of the author Harald Martenstein: "What doesn't happen now will never happen again".
