From the Inside Flap
It's never too late (or too early) to begin finishing well!
In wanting to encourage you to finish well, author Bob Buford has gone to lunch with "some of the smartest people on the planet" and invited you to join them. People such as Peter Drucker, Jim Collins, Dr. Kenneth Cooper, George Gallup, Howard Hendricks, Roger Staubach and Bill Pollard detail how they've gone beyond success to significance in their 40s and beyond, and by their words, you can learn how you too can accomplish work that has eternal purpose and meaning until the day you die.
SOME OF THEIR PEARLS OF WISDOME INCLUDE:
"If people see their best years behind them, they're probably not going to finish very well, because you can't finish well when you're going backwards."
"We can retire from our jobs but we can never retire from our calling."
"We live pale and empty lives here on earth because we're ignorant about what lies ahead, and we need to see that the dimensions of life are so much greater than what we can see, hear, and touch today."
"We are made to work; and to maintain meaning in our lives, we need to be engaged in work that has meaning and purpose."
"People who achieve have a habit of achievement that begs for sustaining."
"As long as you're able to do something meaningful, why would you want to go into some kind of holding pattern?"
Buford doesn't just ask these "second season trailblazers" what finishing well looks like. He lays out practical strategies and offers additional valuable perspective that can ready you for a rich future, whether you're 20 or 80. It's never too late (or too early) to start living a meaningful life!
