We Take Branding Seriously

Insight: Observations and Tips for Success
Age: More than a Number
Like many, I always liked the expression, age is nothing but a number. It seemed to fit a nice neat picture of being youthful. Maybe it still does.
Nowadays, I think of it a bit differently. No doubt, that's because I have a lot more of it, age that is. Turning 75 has adjusted my perspective.
Maybe, when I was 40 or 50, and trying to stay young, ageing meant something different. Saying I am 75 means something, and it's not a negative.
In the past year, between 74 and 75, I've had more than a few conversations and tests with doctors to make me appreciate what a blessing it is to be here.
With the passing of some close friends, and in-depth conversations with others, I was reminded that age is more than a number, a lot more.
Now, as someone who seeks to contribute more and better, I see new opportunities, with new insights, to change the world.
I have long seen myself as a world changer, with a responsibility to do what I do to a higher and higher level, and to empower others to do the same.
I really don't feel any older, but I see the wrinkles, the thinning hair, and the diminished eyesight, to name a few things. They're just friendly reminders.
I know I have work to do, and I am committed to it. Whatever your age, lock in on your stuff and show the world what you've got.
