Life in Three Acts:
- Act One: birth to 30 years
- Act Two: 31- 60 years young
- Act Three 61- plus
These are the three acts of life Jane Fonda discusses during this talk she gave at TED. Jane Fonda is a smart, strong, beautiful and resilient woman. I was a fan before I watched this video. Then she blew me away with her delivery, content and message. At 74 years young (unconfirmed) she rocks.
As I become firmly entrenched in my own second act, it’s a delightful reassurance to know that our life expectancy has increased on average 34 years from that of my great grandparents. We are now expected to live and work longer than any generation before us.
Of particular interest to me is the “older women” demographic. This is the group each day brings me closer and closer to and it is the largest demographic group in the world. Imagine the ability we have to shape the future. That gets me excited!
Take 11 minutes and watch this. Whatever act of life you are in you’ll appreciate her comments.
