Jobs Many older adults simply refuse to or are unable to hang up their spurs and instead continue working well into their seventies and eighties if their health allows. As an example, perhaps the most demanding job on the planet - the current President of the U.S. Joe Biden is in his late seventies. In short, there is no reason to slow down if you don’t want to or don’t have to because of health reasons. Also, try not to be overly focused on the media’s negative news on ageism. Yes, it does exist, but avoid thinking about it and simply soldier on like you always have throughout your life. There’s meaningful work available to older adults, and oftentimes it’s extraordinarily difficult to find. However, with focus and determination – along with a little serendipity (like everything in life) something will come along. The mantra is never give up. I always like to say you have two choices in life, give up, which ensures failure, or keep trying, which ensures you have a chance to succeed.
