On the radio show I talk at length on the subject of “looking forward” to our future years. Looking backward, in my case, being such a self-absorbed user during the dark years, that focusing on being 25 or 30 years old again would be frankly a nightmare.

Not everyone had the past that I had, halleluiah! I realize that some people were conscientious, non- abusers who could enjoy life without alcohol or drugs to cloud the moment. So maybe your younger years are worthy of wistfully reminiscing, if that is the case that is perfectly cool. Let’s use that as our launching point or a goal to reach for.

I will make a deal with you, I want you to really consider this plan I am about to lay out. Stick with it for a month and if you can honestly say you don’t feel better, or have a better outlook then I will email you a free copy of my book.

How does that sound?

Ok, here we go:

Definition – (from Latin: adolescere meaning “to grow up”) is a transitional stage of physical and psychological human development.

Definition – the middle-age period of life, especially when considered a difficult time of self-doubt and readjustment.

So in my opinion our ‘Second Adolescence’ is the combination of the teenage type feeling of growth and wonderment combined with solving the difficult time and self-doubt of readjustment that middle age can bring on. Do you like the thought? Ok so here is the key.

I believe we have a major significant item in all of our lives, one thing that is the numero-uno as far as importancy, and that is ‘Time’.
Embracing this concept will change your life, it did for me.

Time is a finite resource. We all may come to that critical point of self-reflection, be it an illness, an injury, a loss of a loved one, whatever, that we realize that it is time to belly up and become accountable, it certainly did for me, actually a couple of times to be honest. We take time for granted, but it never pauses to do tomorrow what you could do today.

Multi-tasking and procrastination are the norm in today’s fast paced world, which is kind of strange because with all of the technology you would think we are more efficient with our time, we aren’t. Playing ball with our kids, or attending a game or recital for our grandkids today cannot be recaptured tomorrow.


Building a stronger personal relationship with our families, those quality moments, the quality of time and life moments must be taken or the moment is lost, because tomorrow never comes, and yesterday is over. We live in the now and today is the day to accept time for what it is, a gift.

Embracing that our ‘Second Adolescence’ is a combination of growth and wonderment, where we embrace our self-doubt and insecurities, it is the fuel to increase( perhaps expand is a better way of thinking, but you probably see where we are going with this) our time, it incentivizes us, it glows like new found energy, and it is available to anyone who wants it, it costs nothing (but is so valuable) and bears tremendous return of your investment.


Our aging process, our maturation into “Second Adolescence’ is sometimes like looking into the fog, if you keep looking hard enough and the fog clears, there are many items we may be afraid to embrace, they make the murkiness of the fog sometimes thick. Other things we fear could be drivers to self-improvement.

Failure for example is one of those drivers.

Failure in our lives can be used as a useful impetuous to improvement, trying new things and keeping that focus on the abundance of our future is the key.

Embracing failure as a reason for continuing a goal can build self-confidence, failure earlier in our lives can empower.

When I founded Boomers Rock I saw a need , and I needed to build a team, it is helping me to achieve things I never dreamed of accomplishing, and giving back is therapeutic to me, it motivates me to stay energized and be an example of how change and improvement is possible for anyone and everyone.

Maximizing our time is the key, focusing on your dream is the goal, working together is our mission.


Middle age has unlimited potential, the possibilities are overwhelming and exciting, embrace our legacies and we can do a better job of leading and teaching, let’s show our younger generations we care about their futures, because if we do that our futures will be exciting, lively and joyous!

Try these thoughts, in your own way, and like I said if in one month you don’t see a change, you don’t feel a little bit better about things, send me an email to

Put in the heading book and it will be on its way, my gift to you! Read, enjoy, join the movement, it is all good!
