“It’s easier to have the vigor of youth when you’re old than the wisdom of age when you are young.”
—Richard J. Needham, 20th Century Canadian humor columnist
One of the many bonuses of moving back to Pennsylvania is that we are now neighbors with our cousins Paul and Carol. Paul is the patriarch of our family since the passing of my dad a little over two years ago.
One of the many things we all admire about Paul is his boundless energy. In his early eighties, he still works two part-time jobs, runs five miles a day, and plays a mean game of ping pong! In early July, he attended five concerts in one week with his daughter, down the Jersey shore.
We all agree that Paul definitely rocks—and has a pretty good voice when the music is turned up.
How can you maintain the vigor of youth as you continue down the path of greater wisdom?
Who are the roles models that guide and coach you in the development of these qualities?
