I got an email a couple of days ago from a reader who read my recent midlife crisis blog. And, of course, my blog is called Midlife Moments, so midlife crises are a sure topic, right? I am a person who tries not to think a lot about numbers – read money – because it cramps my style, but I love surrounding myself with math and numbers people. They have a different way of looking at things. They still cramp my style, but I do like to take their advice into perspective. I often look at the fun and adventure and thrill of things until I realize that … Oh … this is going to cost me some money.
An accounting website has created this infographic so that those of us caught up in the whirlwind of a midlife crisis might stop and think about it or for those smart youngsters who want to plan ahead for their midlife crisis. According to the data, people who live authentically and do the things they enjoy are less likely to rebel at midlife. It’s those that spend all of their time focused on others and meeting others’ needs that struggle the most with the panic at midlife. So, if you spend your time doing that, you might want to sock away some change for your fancy sports car, divorce or new set of boobs. Enjoy this infographic! I love it, and if you know of anyone who wants to go into accounting, this looks like a great site!
