Would it be great to be 25 years old again? What if you could view the rest of your life as you did then, with every possibility still open to you?
Life would be the most delicious treat, a cake perhaps from which you have only taken one slice. You could then make positive changes whose impact would be felt over the next 50, or 60 years. The rest of your life could be incredibly memorable.
A query in the Guardian Work blog explores the territory of later life choices, from the vantage point of someone at the age of 55. He is trying to find his occupational passion to improve the final part of his working life.
It makes sense to ask ‘what do I want to do now’, since the latest Office for National Statistics figures show a man of 55 can expect to live for another 12 years. Life expectancy for women is slightly longer.
The question is, if you have the choice, what should you do with the remaining 20 per cent of your life?
