>> 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.

Author’s Note:
I originally started to write this book for a mini Ted Talk at my 50th college reunion. After I returned home, one thing led to another and I decided to publish an eBook and paper edition on Amazon.
