This book's pages contain the real-life experiences and pragmatic wisdom of uncommon men and women--people who have led the second half of their lives in an extraordinary way.
Each made a conscious choice to raise the bar, rather than lower his or her expectations. They decided to keep "going for the gold" in their way of living--to design and play a different game.
In midlife and beyond, they set out to reinvent their earlier success by creating a new kind of work they could truly love. And in doing so, they built a rich livelihood and legacy based on their full lifetime potential, not just the choices and necessities of earlier years.
As I encountered such people in the process of my research, I came to describe them as reinventive, and, by extension, to label the nature of their pursuits reinventive work.
"Why live on just one cylinder," one reinventive woman asked me, "never experiencing the joy and power of the rest?"
Meeting such individuals and, in particular, conducting the in-depth personal interviews that are an integral part of this book, has been a profoundly awakening experience for me, as I intend that reading Boundless Potential will be for you.
Be assured, this is no volume of theory or chicken soup for growing older.
It is a practical inquiry into the challenges of today and tomorrow, an intelligent person's guide to a fundamentally new--a twenty-first-century--redefinition of the word success.
-Mark S. Walton, Author: Boundless Potential
