Think of this whole episode as an opportunity for you, yes you, to fill in the blank. Better yet, know that this isn’t a game, but a vital component of how vital you will be or won’t be in your second act of life … after the empty nest … after you give up people pleasing and step into the best times of your life.

The crucial sentence is “Age Doesn’t Matter Unless …” and let’s see how some proactive baby boomers fill in tha...
