New start & new start with 40 & 50 plus: Chances for silverback in mid-life

If you listen to the calls from the economy and Politics, demographic change hovers over us like the sword of Damocles. Our society is getting older and older - and there is a lack of young people. Or is it just a matter of perspective?

The young savages with 40 or 50

What is old, what is young? In our society there are different opinions and evaluations about what is old and what is young. And it shows how great the balancing act is - and how varied the range of possibilities.

In political careers, someone in their mid-forties can easily pass as a young savage, while a 30-year-old is considered a “greenhorn”. In the majority of HR departments, on the other hand, employees or potential applicants in their mid-40s are attributed dwindling productivity and low flexibility.

The special abilities of the silver ridges

Reason enough to consider the phenomenon of an aging society from the very opposite perspective. The following questions arise:

  • What have we, who are no longer young and not yet old, with special abilities?
  • What paths are open to us?
  • And how do we succeed in developing and implementing ideas and desires for a very long-term career - and thus also individually - meaningful life?

Time of change

Because with an increasingly higher life expectancy, more and more people want to live beyond the age of so-called retirement from their professional activities.

In a 2012 themed magazine, GEO Wissen called this phase in our lives “a time of upheaval and awakening”. "The change potential of the elderly is immense," says the New Yorker Professorin Ursula Staudinger im SPIEGEL Interview "Life is a construction site" from August 29.8.2013, XNUMX.

Change concrete

From the very beginning of our lives, we have the opportunity to discover completely new perspectives in many different ways, from dreams that we have perhaps not lived, from our memory-books - and with our experience to new, perhaps surprising ones Life plans.

But after we have answered the question of what opportunities are open to people in midlife, it now becomes specific: How can you use your potential? Because one thing is clear: Starting over is not a privilege of young people.

The older the better

It is our experiential knowledge that - cleverly used - empowers us in the middle of the world for the rapid classification of impressions and events - and gives us the power of precise judgment.

The renowned neuropsychologist Ernst Pöppel sums it up as “the older, the better”. It is true that the attention peaks at which our brain is ready to absorb completely new things are farther apart than with the boys in mid-life - Pöppel speaks of the slower metronome.

We combine differently in age

On the other hand, in the wave valleys between two so-called oscillation points, there are greater possibilities of combination for everything that bursts upon us. We process and combine different impressions more sustainably and draw from our experience.

An invaluable advantage when it comes to reorientation. And, in this way, really to achieve the will-forming process, from a first timidly flourishing idea, which could still be possible.

Volotion - with deliberation and intensity

In science, this process operates under the term volition and means that the truly volitionally gifted human being should be Objective pursued with caution and intensity at the same time: "An arrangement of self-regulative strategies in which explicit action tendencies dominate over pure behavioral impulses" as a study by the Management Academy Review puts it (Kehr, H. 2004, 29, 479-499).

In this will-forming process, the willingness to change reflects on his current situation, embarks on the introspection of his abilities, qualities and motives, and creates a landscape of ideas, which could now be possible - in order to decide on a goal.

From will to implementation

A very big, important step in this "career" of will. Now the step into implementation is only a small one.

This process can be learned and especially people in the middle of life can draw on the abundance of their already lived life and their judgment in the important balancing processes. The decisive one Impuls To implement careful planning, the author Harald Martenstein may have found: "What does not happen now will never happen again".
