Achieving a great age, with good health and vitality, is at the heart of everything we discuss on this podcast. But who are we, as human beings? What is our purpose and what is the difference between getting old and growing old? Richard Leider, founder of Inventure – The Purpose Company, is one of America’s preeminent executive-life coaches. He has spent a lifetime trying to better understand the components of life that really matter. His book, Who Do You Want to Be When You Grow Old? dissects the aging path, from adulthood to elderhood. In this interview with Peter Bowes, Richard explains why we should feel liberated by the process, rather than daunted or hostile, and how purposeful aging – a reason to get up in the morning – is accessible to all.
