So here you are--with more than half of your life behind you and not nearly so many of those goals you once had accomplished. Or maybe you've reached all of those goals and are lost as to what to want next. Never fear--the "second life" as Barbara Sher calls it, can be just as good, in fact even better than the first. With Sher leading you step by step through the process of renewal and rediscovery, you learn how to identify what it is you want and exactly how to go about getting it.
In fact, the second life can be a great learning period and getting it right can save you years of confusion and prevent desperate acts like divorce, affairs, and dropping out. Beginning with the empowering notion that everyone has a future, regardless of his or her age, Barbara Sher first shows you how to identify where you are and the illusions that are holding you back. Then, using enlightening exercises like tracking your dreams and impressions throughout your life, beginning with infancy, and constructing a plan for the next 30 years, whatever your age, Sher shows you how to tackle your new life.
It'S Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now is a positive guide to recovering your individuality and mapping out your second life. Barbara Sher's trademark warm, engaging tone and lead-by-the-hand technique are sure to make it a self-help classic.

As baby boomers hit their 40s and 50s in record numbers, they're beginning to realize that middle age isn't what it used to be--that the old assumptions about these difficult years just aren't true anymore. Barbara Sher, the author of such motivational bestsellers as Live the Life You Love, believes that midlife is the beginning of something better than mere youth, a time when "you start to live your life to suit who you really are." Instead of worrying about your slowing body or unrealized expectations, Sher says, why not focus on new opportunities to take risks and try new experiences, or to take another crack at personal goals you never had a chance to go for in the past? Sher's unique view of aging is a heartening one, and it is sure to bring encouragement to those who would like to see "the big 4-0" as a beginning rather than an end.From the Back Cover:
