Are You Ready for Your Life Reimagined Moment?
Are you at a point in your life where you’re asking, “What’s next?” You’ve finished one chapter and you have yet to write the next one. Many of us face these transitions at midlife, but they can happen at any point. It’s a time full of enormous potential, and it defines a whole new phase of life. It’s called Life Reimagined.
Here is your map to guide you in this new life phase. You can use the powerful practices and insights—enhanced with online tools and exercises at AARP’s LifeReimagined.org website—to help you uncover your own special gifts, connect with people who can support you, and explore new directions.
You’ll be inspired by meeting ordinary people who have reimagined their lives in extraordinary ways. You’ll also read the stories of pioneers of the Life Reimagined movement such as Jane Pauley, James Brown, and Emilio Estefan. They show us that this journey of discovery can help us find fulfillment in surprising new places.
One of the profound truths that underlies this book is the liberating notion that each of us is “an experiment of one,” free to find our own path in this new phase of our lives. No old rules, no outdated societal norms, no boundaries of convention or expectation. Let Life Reimagined help you discover your new life possibilities!

Richard Leider and Alan Webber, two authors with long and successful pedigrees of making sense of major shifts in the world around us, have written an important book, one that begs to be read again and more deeply understood as soon as you have finished reading it. Life Reimagined cogently explains that the old notion of retirement, one framed by big employers, unions, actuaries, pension funds and TV situation comedies, is dying, dead and useless in a world where we live longer and demand more of life itself. They focus on the possibilities that life offers when life’s ‘triggers’ throw us off our settled courses and how to approach the inevitable transitions that such jarring events engender. These possibilities must be dealt with since, as they eloquently state in the book’s strongest message, choice is not a choice, and being stuck in fear and habit is the worst of all outcomes. They offer a practical guide to how to approach new directions with success in the pursuit of meaning and vitality; at all ages and all junctions. Above all, they advise us not to go it alone, always to connect with others for that is how we learn what we sound like, who we really are, and where serendipitous possibilities lie.

In SEP I left my job of 27 years which was at the end of a forty or so year career in IT. Much of that was unpleasant, long, rewarding and challenging, but never true to my core interests; I just happened to be good at IT. Richard Leider has put together a very simple book with some manageable steps to re-start your life, doing what you actually enjoy. For three months or so I’ve been working through the process of trying to figure out what is next on my own, and also working with a professional firm which focuses primarily on getting you back in the work force. I ordered this last last week and it’s helped me focus more than any other approach over the past three months. Reading “Life Reimagined” is like having a nice thoughtful person listening to you and being supportive of your interests, your need to do something really important and enjoyable for YOU in the time you have left. It’s thought provoking enough that one would benefit reading it long before being Social Security eligible.

After reading a great book, you see evidence of its message in most everything you do. Lieder and Webber provide the security and permission to internally explore what can be. They understand transition’s angst and the power of connecting with others. Their model respects isolation as dangerous, authenticity as the peace to seek, and that growing from the inside replaces clutter with choices to live fully. No advice or recipe to perfection’s illusion here, but a clear process that provides hope and encouragement for dancing to your own music. While Bolles’ Parachute freed job seekers, and Covey made self-improvement habitual, Life Reimagined has reframed curiosity and possibilities as the new lexicon of a life well lived.

Authors Webber and Leider make this eminently readable book a primer on positively and sometimes radically changing your life (at any age, but particularly over 50). The word “retirement” is redefined convincingly as not just “an opportunity” but also a challenge. As the authors quote from real life stories, we see it takes imagination, energy, and purpose to make adjustments–often forced on us by circumstances–that keep us happy and filled with purpose. Childhood and older age are life’s most vulnerable periods, but they can also be the most joyous and affirming.
