Step up when others want you to step aside

Never, ever allow anyone or any organization to make you a relic or irrelevant. Your value and relevance is without measure in a society blind to the fact that you may have forgot more than they ever knew. Your experience, education, network, and strengths is not in looking stylish but by being substantial. As long as you have the stamina to work then do so without regard to others who want you to go away so they can look better.

I️ like Ronald Reagan’s response when asked if 73 was too old to be president. “I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent’s youth and inexperience,” he went on to win the presidency by a landslide and to be one of America’s most effective leaders. It was only when his body let him down that he slowed down. It was not when others wanted him to step down.
