Inevitability Of Irrelevance

Grandchildren, orphan homes, big brothers programs, foster parents–the world is full of opportunities that need steady, capable people to step up and lend their leadership skills.

At work? Take an intern to lunch and befriend them. They are always broke, always hungry and usually quite appreciative of career advice and guidance.

Maintain and exhibit the notion that you have something to offer and that it could be very useful to the right listener.

The answer is dignity, my friends. You have amassed a career and a home life conjured out of respect for your trade and your life needs.

Finish strong, maintain your dignity and find an audience for that which is still good, strong, sage advice and experience.

Anything else would be a waste of good history; find a new audience for your precious memories. I’ll bet they find a pearl or two…as will you.
