“I was talking to a group of managers one time, and I thought I’d try it out on them. It seemed to me plausible to suggest to them that the real future of old age in business is discovery. They were quite struck by this. It seemed to make profound sense—most of them were over forty. But the point about old age as a period of discovery contradicts the merely chronological approach to things. But the older man in business is a man who knows the field, and he’s in a much better position to be a discoverer than some younger man who is merely job-holding. And so there’s hope.”
