I heard recently of an 80-year-old man who was considering retirement for a third time.

But before he made his decision, he consulted a trusted mentor to discuss next steps and get some advice.

How good is that?

I hope when I’m 80, I’m still considering the next steps.

I hope that I’m still looking to how I can make a contribution.

I hope that I’m still living with purpose.

I’m 50 next year and I occasionally fall into the trap of thinking that I’m getting old.

This guy reminds me that if your mind is sharp and the energy is there, you’re never too old.

I hope I never forget that lesson.
