A roadmap to the second curve

You know it's time to look for the second curve when you don't enjoy your work as much as before:

  • You feel your competence declining.
  • Others close to you notice you're not as sharp as you used to be.
  • Other people receive the social and professional attention you are used to.
  • You have to decrease your workload.
  • People you meet don't recognise you or your previous work
  • You feel like no one.

Moving toward the second curve:

  • Evaluate and improve relationships. You'll be good at that.
  • Don't wish for something better, work for what you want.
  • Value and hire for wisdom in the C-suite and on boards.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

People possess two types of intelligence.

Professional young athletes expect their talents to taper off in their early adulthood, and many prepare for a second career in advance. Musicians are similar and often find that their abilities decline over time.

Ageing isn't all bad news. In some specific ways, you'll get smarter and more skilful. The trick to improve is understanding, developing, and practising your new strength.

The decline is not all past 40. Certain abilities grow during middle age that favour wisdom, teaching, and sharing ideas. Language skills tend to increase.
