Paul, have you ever thought of borrowing someone else’s perception? If we borrow money, books, a bit of petrol, a spare bed, why not someone else’s perception? It can always be given back.
I wrote here on Medium about being an entrepreneur after 40, all inspired by another blog post by Adrian Kosmaczewski.
I am actually secretly pleased that my rejection of arbitrary age milestones is somehow not unique. We have inherited these milestones like a genetic disease and we pass them on without a murmur.
Why 40 and not 32 years, 9 months and 5 days old? Maybe if we measured our life in seconds only, it would be so difficult to remember our age correctly that we’d give up counting the passage of time.
On top of that, we would never be accurate, so why bother? There are so many things worth using as time markers. The first win…the first loss…the first app :)
