The 4 Stages of Life
by Steve Unger
Who are you?
How did you get here?
What made you you?
This book is intended to help retirees reflect on and make a record of their own lives that can be shared with family and friends.
In this essay, I discuss the 4 Stages of Life. For me, I view these as “quarters” each about 25 years in length plus or minus. You could also think of these stages as “chapters” or “sections”. Each stage usually has an identifiable turning point and may also involve a major life-change “pivot”.
To make this essay more interesting, humorous, and vivid, I do share some experiences from my own life as examples. However, this essay is not an autobiography.
