Last week I wrote that I was starting a blog about Octogenarians that have re-invented themselves in their eighties and asked for recommendations from anyone about people I might interview. So far I have 2 prospects but have not yet interviewed anyone.
From talking to several I’ve noticed something’s in common. They are all noticeably positive people. They pretty much see the bright side of everything. Not Pollyanna’s, they are practical, but positive. To the point where they try to surround themselves with positive people and avoid negative people. Perhaps not consciously, but it’s there.
I can use more referrals for interviews if you have any ideas of people that have started a new life of some sort or another after retirement. I’m particularly interested in what they think about why they are what they are. What made them so productive late in life??
In my case, I think I have some clues which I’ll share with you next week when I interview myself.
