Multistage lives will make you think harder about you lead yours.

We are all living longer and technological change is speeding up. We want to ensure that this will translate into living better too. Old patterns of life such as the traditional three-stage life (childhood, career/children, retirement) are increasingly redundant. You will need to think harder about how to navigate your life as a result. Sticking your head in the sand will not do. This can and should be invigorating. There will be opportunities to explore and learn. There is likely to be more leisure time. But maintaining relationships, which is central to happiness, will also involve more work in the course of such multistage lives. This will apply to relationships between couples as much as with other people such as family and friends.
