How long does a typical American career last?

Disney Institute top speakers
From our Disney Institute Participant Guide book. Imagine a person entrusted to teach eager students how to reach for the stars. Imagine if the instructors didn’t actually practice what they preached. i couldn’t live with this thought. Years ago i committed to only preaching what i practice.


How long does a typical American career last?

Ten, 20, 30, 40+ years?

How long does a typical American invest in staying physically active?

i’m reminded that it took me 40 years before i committed to “never turning away” from getting and staying physically active.

Think lifetime gym class where you’re the teacher and the student.

And here we are, roughly 100 days from my 59th birthday.

At 58, i’ve reached a level of physical vibrancy i never knew was possible, let alone possible for a “senior citizen”.

And to think, there are people my age who haven’t yet started.
