100-year Life

The 100-year Life – Living and Working in An Age of Longevity,
Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott, Bloomsbury Business, 2017

The three phase life (education, employment, retirement) is history now: gone forever. Maybe we will have (learn, work, rest, learn, work, rest…).
Or (learn, work/learn, work/learn, ..). I hope resting time can be in the mix occasionally. This change is due to the gig economy and longer life expectations. This book shows how to rethink your finances, your education, your career and your relationships and create a fulfilling 100-year life.
