The After-50 Career Change

The After-50 Career Change

James Gonyea, Monster Contributing Writer

Stay Strong

The best defense against the obstacles that inhibit older workers is to stay in great shape, both mentally and physically. Get in the habit of reading books on positive thinking and exercising on a regular basis.

Be Flexible

Learn to adjust and change. Understand that you’ve become set in your ways and how this type of behavior often conflicts with the times.

Your post-50 years can be your most enjoyable and rewarding if you have the right attitude. Fight the battles you can win, forget the rest and use your time where it counts most: Enjoy your family, help others through your work and become the best person you can be.
