How do you know geezers are cool? We live the power of now. In fact, we are very much like Generation Flux FAST COMPANY describes in its current issue. Generation Flux embraces that business is chaotic, careers come and go, and that's the way it is. Geezer cool embeds those same values and behaviors.
Who are the cool Geezers? Clint Eastwood, Hillary Clinton, Betty White and my new BFF who is designing jewelry which a brandname retailer is negotiating to buy. Some days but not all I exude Geezer cool. On those, I talk about how some underpaid boring assignment can be leveraged to a premium paying exciting assignment happening in Brazil. On uncool days I, like Captain Ahab, talk aloud about those who supposedly had done me wrong, from 20,30, 40, even 50 years ago.
Reflection: Will cool win out over uncool in my struggle to exit the drama of the past?
