Description

Professionals and business people in midlife are increasingly asking themselves 'what's next?' in their careers and personal lives. This book draws on the wisdom of the ages to help today's men and women plan for a satisfying, useful, moral and meaningful second half of their lives. In his career as a teacher, philosopher and consultant to the leaders of ancient Athens, Aristotle thought long and hard about what it means to lead a 'good life'. Although he formulated his ideas nearly 2500 years ago, the questions he encouraged people to ask are still as relevant as ever: How do I find meaning and satisfaction in life? What is true happiness? How much money do I need to achieve it? What is the right balance between work, family and leisure? What are my responsibilities to my community? Bridging philosophy and self help, James O'Toole's thoughtful and intelligent book shows how happiness is attainable no matter what one's level of income. By asking the right questions and disciplining ourselves to pursue things that are 'good for us' we can all create robust and satisfying personal life plans.
