I read this article on Next Avenue and found it very interesting.You are never too old to find your TRUE calling! 

3 Ways to Find Your True Calling in Midlife

A few of my favorite ideas in 'Work Reimagined'I’m glad I did.

As a career coach who routinely reads books about finding purpose at work, I’ve developed a short list of authors whose work on this topic I most admire. Richard Leider, executive life coach and chief curator of content for AARP’s Life Reimagined Institute, is one of them. So when I learned that Leider and his frequent collaborator David Shapiro had a new book coming out this month, I was eager to comb through it.

Work Reimagined: Uncover Your Calling is invaluable for anyone looking to feel more connected to their work, especially in midlife. (Leider also hosts a new PBS show airing this week on the subject.) At a time when so many of us feel we have little control over our work lives, this book offers a needed reminder that our calling is not our job, it is what we bring to our job. (I’ll tell you about three of my favorite parts of the book momentarily.)
