Welcome to Further … good to see you!
You know, midlife may not be the easiest period of our lives, given the amount of financial obligation and stress most of us have. But it’s definitely a time that’s ripe for us to become our next-level selves.
In fact, our priorities start to change around this age. We begin acting toward a more purposeful future that brings us real happiness.
And that’s what Further is all about.
The art of midlife reinvention
People at midlife these days are very different from previous generations. Even in our 40s and 50s, we still feel young and think young, and there’s a good chance we’ll be around a lot longer.
That means we’ll be forced to adapt to a radically changing world (same as it ever was). And we’ll face unique opportunities and challenges:
- Health: Thanks to the billions being poured into longevity research and almost weekly news of promising advances, it’s likely we’ll be the first generation to fully benefit from treatments that defeat the diseases of aging. We just have to stay healthy and live long enough to live much longer by minimizing the usual downside of aging. It’s all about getting better at getting older.
- Wealth: The traditional concept of retirement is already falling apart, and it’s not like we’re flush with retirement funds thanks to the debacle of 2008. Meanwhile, robotics, automation, and AI may not destroy our careers, but they will radically change our roles. It’s time to think in terms of our own personal enterprises instead of jobs, and seek out work that gives us a sense of purpose.
- Personal Growth: One of the best things about getting a bit older is becoming wiser. The processor may be a little slower, but our software is getting damn good. The key to surviving and thriving in an accelerating world is to learn constantly, make better decisions, and perform at our best. In the process, we have the opportunity to become the versions of ourselves that we aspire to.
These big opportunities and challenges are why Further exists. One weekly email with the top hand-picked resources for living a long, prosperous, and meaningful life.
Become your own life coach
We’ve never been fond of authority. We’re not looking for a guru to save us. We’ve always just stepped up and got it done for ourselves.
And that’s the perfect attitude for the modern world. There’s plenty of great information out there on how to improve your health, enhance your career and investments, and become your best self.
That said, you don’t have time to sift through the mountain of information released each day. And you really don’t have time to separate the fake new and the fluff from the solid, research-based resources that help you live your best life at midlife.
That’s our job, and we deliver only the best selections each week by email. Sign up below to join us, and let’s get started.
The best part of the journey is just beginning.
