Mid Life Celebration’s essence is here, and parallels what others say.
Pursue something so important that even if you fail, the world is better off with you having tried. – Tim O’Reilly
Five-a-day bloggers. How many are there?
So I Googled five-a-day bloggers and got 367,000,000 search results, but nothing on the first page described anyone who actually writes five daily blogs.
Okay, no problem, let’s narrow the search, so I typed – “five-a-day bloggers” – using quotation marks to focus the search.
Click here to see the result.
When was the last time you Googled anything and got only one result?
If you are new to Mid Life Celebration, welcome. Hope you find this (and the other four daily blogs) a refreshing visit in a cyber-world that is overcrowded with people trying to sell us stuff.
None of the five-a-day blogs I write are selling anything. Maybe hope and inspiration. But nothing that costs money.
Is it a secret?
The vision for Mid Life Celebration.
No, it’s not a secret. But it is crazy.
Because who am I to think that I could rally enough Baby Boomer men to help make the world a better place?
There’s roughly 80 million Baby Boomers. Let’s say half are men, that’s 40 million.
Let’s suppose, since 97% of the world’s wealth is controlled by 3% of the population, there’s an assumption that says 3% in any category are “movers and shakers”.
Three percent of 40 Mil is 1.2 Million Baby Boomer men who are predisposed to be excellent.
Initially, I’d like to challenge these 1.2 million men, as they start to retire and have, theoretically, more disposable money and certainly more disposable time, to do something great.
To turn off the television, get up of their butts and “do something great“!
The “doing something great” definition encompasses this:
The world needs a ton of help. Elder men ought to assume enough responsibility to proactively start the momentum for positive change.
If we’re lucky, these Baby Boomer men will create a ripple effect.
And then, Baby Boomer women, Gen X, Gen Y, Millennials and on down to elementary schools will be predisposed – to plants seeds of social, spiritual, physical, emotional and financial responsibility.
As President Obama has said, “We can. We Will. IF, we all work together”.
