On Turning 50 – Just a few observations

 Getting Older

Star Trek and I turn 5 decades, 2.5 scores, 1/2 a century, or 50 years old, tomorrow. Needless to say, I am being overly contemplative, reflective, hopeful, and curious for what is to come in the next 50.

Here are a few observations of getting older and turning half a century:

  1. You are only as old as you feel.

  2. Often the greatest joys come from personal and simple pleasures.

  3. Don’t overlook accomplishments that move you closer to a goal.

  4. The older you get, the faster time seems to move.

  5. Do something that makes you happy, everyday.

  6. Savor, appreciate, and share your gratitude with others.

I am excited to announce that RobbWorks’ second book, our soon to be released workbook will be available soon–more on that coming shortly. Stay tuned!
