Clocks don’t go backwards


The more we hear from Olderhood Followers, the more the issue of change in lifestyle becomes prevalent.

The migration …

From an income-generating lifestyle, away from home each day, commuting, eating lunch at the office etc …..

To a stay-at-home, no active income lifestyle,

seems to have a wide range of impact on most folks.

Understandably so.

Same applied to me.

So, we decided to write a brand new Series on, called “Transitions”

It is a mix of anecdotes from people we know, people we’ve read about, research reports, and personal experiences. Each Issue will be short and hopefully to the point, and we are already getting feedback comments and ideas on the first Issue – “Money”.

The Series, over the next several weeks, will discuss “Being around the house” ; “Face the Facts” ; “Spending Money” ; and so forth.

The biggest challenge in life at the sharp end, is adjusting from an active, rush-rush lifestyle to perhaps a more laid-back life. Not all of us can make that adjustment easily.

The problem is in fighting the notion that your productive years are now behind you and the gardening club, or golf swing, will start to get your attention more. In our 40s we looked forward to laying back, travelling, staying in bed whenever we wanted, doing nothing – now we are at that stage in life, we just don’t seem to have the same ambitions of lazy mornings – or do you…?

We’ll report back on reader’s comments within the Series and will always encourage you to chip in with your thoughts.

It’s nice to be back home after my London trip. I did a lot of travelling, mainly for business, for many, many years (too many actually), so it was kind of nice to take a more leisurely approach to this London trip. I enjoyed it, but will not tell you about my little “slide on my backside” in Victoria Station. The pride may even outweigh the pain. (p.s. I don’t drink – I know that’s what you were thinking !!). I’ll tell you when I see you in person.

Finally, we’ve been invited to work with the Facebook people on their new venture “Facebook for Business”. We’ll monitor their development and progress, and offer suggestions, comments, criticisms, etc. Facebook is in Transition as well – now recognising that businesses like use Facebook every day, and can build customer appeal, if done tastefully and genuinely … to become a Trusted Source of information, research and dialogue.

Check out our Transitions Series at – hope you like it.

Bye, Bill
