Second Acts : Second Acts is a guide to reinventing your life. A second act can mean changing careers, moving to a more desirable part of the country (or world), starting a business, or dropping everything to pursue a life dream, whether it's writing a novel, adopting a child, or traveling the world with a backpack and fishing pole. In this heartening new book, Stephen Pollan offers a powerful message that has given hope and guidance to his own clients: Most of the barriers to a rich and rewarding life are self-imposed - and are absolutely surmountable. Through a series of exercises, you are invited to work through sources of dissatisfaction so you can discover and examine your own personal hopes and dreams and determine how to achieve them. By the end of the book, you will have developed a comprehensive "script" for your second act - a step-by-step action plan that will guide you to the life of your dreams. Writing for the 25-year-old career-changer, the 65-year-old about to retire, and everyone in between, Pollan shows how he did it, and how you can successfully change the course of your life and create a more rewarding, enjoyable future.
