Start being conservative at age 40? I really like the rest of the article, and to me (43) that sentence stood out like a sore thumb!
Why would one start being conservative and stop taking (calculated) risk?
If you’ve taken care of yourself your 40’s is where you’re in your prime. You’ve done your 10,000 Malcolm-Gladwell-hours and you still have vast amounts of energy to pull off some pretty great stunts.
Take that energy for a spin. See what you can make of it and don’t let anyone — anyone — tell you you can’t!!
