Learning About Life Transitions


The recently published book (2012), Live Smart After 50!  The Experts’ Guide to Life Planning for Uncertain Times, included the following definition:  “Life planning is thinking in a purposeful way about how you want to live.  It begins with knowing who you are --- your values, strengths and motivations – then applies this knowledge to making choices and setting goals.  Life planning helps you take responsibility for and create your best life after 50.” For details on this book click here
