Description de l'ouvrage

1 février 2012
LIFE Expectancy makes the case that many Americans do not yet fully appreciate the fact that their economic game and the associated stakes have substantially changed over the past couple of years. LIFE Expectancy tells the truth about the financial challenges facing Americans now and in the decades ahead and urges a new form of self-reliance as the only way to get through. The book demonstrates why it is mandatory to get started now and answers the question, "How can I be more proactive in the creation of the rest of my life?" LIFE Expectancy reveals the power and vitality that result from changing your game and why it is never too late-or too early- to do it. As the author says, "This book is for those who have decided that the continuation of the status quo cannot or will not be tolerated." With seventy-five million children of the baby boom years moving through and past the age of sixty-five, and their children and grandchildren saddled with massive debt, many Americans find themselves in a very precarious situation at just the "wrong" time in their lives. If they don't wake up to the new reality and do it soon, at some point in the not too distant future they could be brutally blindsided by learning how insecure their future really is. Those who can grasp the significance of the shift that has occurred-and who can take purposeful and timely actions in response to it-will get the best of the available options. Life Expectancy delivers the truth for those in the boomer generation who assumed they could be passive non-participants in life for their last twenty or so years. No longer true. Previously in America, "old people" surrendered their liveliness and allowed the youth culture to dominate as they wasted away in retirement. This book makes the first strong argument for turning that paradigm on its head as the very solution to our country's problems. There is a whole new game for the boomer generation to play, and it's the opposite of fading away. This book is about changing your life and work "games" for the better, no matter your current circumstances. It is about becoming the initiator of that change in the service of your best interests rather than continuing to be a reactor to the people and events around you. It is about being reflective and purposeful about your requirements and your direction. Throughout LIFE Expectancy, the author offers key principles that can drive purposeful change including using your own mortality as a way of accessing your latent personal power. This is the how-to of "changing your game." There is every reason to feel good about confronting and proactively restructuring your game no matter your age or the maturity of your business. If you know it is time to become your own powerful agent of change in your own service, this is the book for you. Even if everything is going well for you at the moment, if you haven't changed your approach in a while that is a very good reason to do it. It is never too late to be more proactive in the creation that is the rest of your life. This book provides a clear blueprint for doing just that. It is truthful, motivating and is itself, game-changing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Make a difference. Take a risk. It's never too late. 6 mars 2012

A recent article reported the top five regrets of the dying:
1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Will Keiper notes that on average you will experience less than 30,000 sunrises. And they are ticking away... So the question is: how do you want to use those days ahead?

Keiper's book is designed to help you remember that it's not too late... however old you are.

There's a saying I love: "The best time in life to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is today." Read Keiper's book and go plant your tree, work on your mission, make a difference, take a risk!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beyond Expectation! 6 mars 2012
Par James Manton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Like millions all over the world, you are probably now more aware than ever before that what you expect holds very little influence over how things actually turn out. Maybe it's time to reconsider what you expect about a lot of things - your life, your career, your retirement, and your money.

Life Expectancy will challenge you to do exactly that. This is a hard hitting book with an urgent and important message for us all. Pulling no punches, William Keiper has written a book that will challenge you to stop idly expecting your life to turn out just fine and, instead, take matters into your own hands. He not only challenges you, but he guides the way with examples and powerful stories.

People who know William Keiper, a very successful business leader and consultant, know that he is a fiercely passionate change agent, and they rely on him to tell them the truth, even when it hurts. Why? Because the truth removes their blinders and frees them to take intensely focused action in service of their own best interests.

Keiper reveals how he had to face his own truth. He recently suffered a number of events that had jolted him to the core. Not a man to be victimized, Keiper took a hard look at the truth about himself and his life, and he went to work in his usual fashion. He dug deeply into the issues, committed to change, and took massive action. The work he did was life changing. In Life Expectancy, Keiper shares not only the wisdom he has accumulated over his career but the very best of those transformative lessons.

What I love most about this book is that it takes you from expectations about your life to expectancy - literally being on the edge of your seat as your take charge of your life. As Fredrick Hudson reminds us in these unpredictable times,"...To rejoice in living you must invent your own future, entrepreneur your life, and expect surprises." This book is a field guide for those who want to invent their future, no matter what surprises are in store for them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I thought I was alone in my thinking until I read LIFE Expectancy 24 mars 2012
Par Jeff Holtmeier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a lifelong entrepreneur turning 50, I see the prospect of 'retirement' coming at me faster than I once imagined. As I looked at the inevitability of my approaching major life milepost, I am still feeling the pain of the Great Recession economic meltdown, seeing a rapidly changing global economic landscape, and I now believe that government programs will not last to support most Americans (no less the lifestyle I personally wish to maintain). During this time I really thought that I was alone in my thinking that American boomers must take control of our futures and throw out the notion that we'll ride off into a financially comfortable sunset.

I started looking for answers and the book Life Expectancy by William Keiper was recommended to me. After reading Life Expectancy, my own nascent thoughts and concerns about the reality of retirement as we thought it was going to be, were brought into focus. This book tells the real truth about the fact that traditional retirement is not going to happen for my generation. It was a wake-up call for me that I could not and would not be a lemming running off a cliff following tens of millions of other Americans who just aren't getting it. William Keiper offers a truthful and practical approach through which to address these new and serious realities. He makes clear that we must become more self-reliant than ever before, and that I must be prepared to make it happen on my own. As he says "no waiting, the clock is ticking."

Mr. Keiper should stand on a mountaintop and shout the words from his book Life Expectancy repeatedly until everyone can clearly see the reality of what we're facing, and give everyone the opportunity to change their games for the better while they still have time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Provocative Answers to Finding a Sustained Future 8 mars 2012
Par Manpower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Life Expectancy offers an antidote to and a pathway for those who are unsure about their personal future and those who do not even know that they should be. Things have indeed changed, substantially more than most people realize. With uncommon clarity, Life Expectancy presents a sobering perspective on mortality and the impact of a new economic and demographic reality that is at once unprecedented and irreversible.

Keiper addresses with palpable urgency, a fundamental requisite shift in the ethos and historical expectations of generations of Americans, as they grow older. He dismisses entrenched conventional perceptions about the limitations of an aging population. According to Keiper `retirement' perceived and accepted as the last act in life's playbook, is rendered hollow by a profound new confluence of a dramatically changed economic paradigm and a massively burgeoning older demographic (The boomers are only the beginning).

Although William Keiper is a highly accomplished public company executive, he sidelines the implicit reserve and ego with an uncharacteristic candor and forthrightness. This makes Life Expectancy an especially engaging read. He openly shares his experiences and life challenges and graciously supports them with magnanimity--through a generous assortment of enlightening scholarly references, and insightful quotes--from Sarte to Churchill, from Jerry Garcia to Albert Einstein.

I often find statistics and data interesting, but usually pretty dry and impersonal. It is fascinating how statistics and data connected with this author: in preparing a speech before The Conference Board, a prestigious 85 year old business leadership group that studies trends and data, William Keiper's preparation for the speech led him to "review a large amount of current and historical economic and other data." As the author says, he "was struck by the...trends." It appears that his astute observation of collective trending in the data, both inspired and compelled him to write Life Expectancy.

Keiper interspersed throughout this book a brilliant distillation of the data he encountered. The data serve to powerfully and effectively illuminate and support his prescient wake-up call. With laser precision, keiper adroitly and apolitically presents a sustainability argument regarding debt and entitlement commitments. He does this so strikingly that whatever your political leanings; the unsettling empirical truth becomes undeniable. He actually transforms the data into an emotional component of the message. This is rare. In Life Expectancy, the data become a powerful catalyst that will drive you toward a personal reevaluation of where you really are in the dimension of our time and place; our here and now.

Life Expectancy is at the crossroads of longevity and economic reality. It is a powerful call-to-arms through self-exploration, self-empowerment, and ultimately, self-reliance. It is both a great reality check, and a feel-good affirmation that celebrates the power of an individual to control the trajectory of his or her life--regardless of chronological age.

Get this book! It is an essential read if you want provocative answers to finding a sustained future.
