At the next Vistage meeting, we will answer questions regarding values and philosophies that impacted our life (including mentors or centers of influence) which will then morph into a discussion about dreams. I chose to take the exercise further (copying from Dean's email blog about his life) and break my life up into decades with the values generated.
I'm living now in my 6th decade (my age of reason,spirituality and maybe enlightenment). So instead of Will and Ann Durant's "History of Civilization" my short story will be about each of my decades (titles only):
1st Decade (1954 - 1964) - I play and learn .... therefore I am.
2nd Decade (1964 - 1974) - Who am I? What will I do?
3rd Decade (1974 - 1984) - How do I compare/rank? How fast can I climb?
4th Decade (1984 - 1994) - This work is a long journey - what are the priorities - me or family?
5th Decade (1994 - 2004) - What am I? Where am I going? Who am I (the second half)
6th Decade (2004 - 2014) - Who is God? What is my purpose? What else is there?
7th Decade (2014 - 2024) - ?????? - To be determined
8th Decade (2024 - 2034) - ?????? - To be determined
And the complete title? Garen - Who, What, Where, When, Why and How?
