The author, Ms. Oishi, is a mother of two children who will be attending graduate school from 2022 while doing audio distribution, writing, and running a yoga studio. After joining a foreign-affiliated company as a new graduate, Ms. Oishi worked for 16 years. It was a dull feeling.”
I’ve become a middle-ranking person at work, and I have a family, and I can see the future direction. I have far less anxiety about the future than when I was young, and my life is going well.
But there is another me who asks me this question.
“Are you satisfied with the accumulation of the rest of your life?” It’s not just Mr. Oishi, I think there are many people who feel this vague feeling.
This is probably because we are entering an era of 100-year lifespans, and things that are an extension of a professional life are coming into view. Regardless of gender, there are many people who are in the middle of the second half of their professional life and wonder, “Is it okay to stay like this?”
This book breaks down the “fuzzy feeling” that many people feel around the age of 40, that is, the “40-year-old wall”, and explores how to design the second half of life in order to live as you are. ?” is for thinking.
Mr. Oishi himself also hit the “40-year-old wall”, and as a result of trial and error, he chose to quit the company and live with the work he wanted to do (= his own business). I’ll give you specific suggestions based on my experience.
The identity of the “40-year-old wall”
Have you ever heard the term “mid-life crisis”?
It is a psychological crisis peculiar to middle age, depression and anxiety disorders that fall into middle-aged and elderly people, and it is said that people in their late 30s to 50s are more likely to fall into it.
This “midlife crisis” can be explained by psychologist Erikson’s “psychosocial developmental theory.” It is a way of thinking that “walls will appear several times in life. By overcoming them, you will grow psychologically.”
Until the age of 40, people develop around acquiring new sensations and knowledge. After being born in this world, we grow physically and mentally, go out into society, choose a way of life, create our own family, and grow with love. We usually reach the peak of our growth around the age of 40.
After that, the course of development changes. It changes to the development towards the end of life and begins to pass what it has to the next generation.
It’s time to change from “gain” to “reduce”. Until now is the time when the tide of development changes.
Mr. Oishi says that this “mid-life crisis”, when the tide is turning and people are bewildered by a different feeling, is what the “40-year-old wall” really is.
to live a happy life
When you break down the question, “What elements are necessary for a happy life?”, the following three elements can be seen.
1. Money (income/assets)
2. Connections (family, friends, acquaintances)
3. Health (physical strength, cognitive ability)
These three aspects can be said to be the foundation for human beings to feel happy.
In order to satisfy these three elements, it is necessary to design a career that does not reach retirement age. In this book, we refer to “work” that satisfies the three elements of “money,” “connection,” and “health,” and is rewarding.
So, how do you find your own “self-made business”? and how to start? In this book, I will carefully tell you the specific steps that you can start right now, one by one, with the author’s actual experience. When thinking about how to design the second half of one’s life, one keyword is not based on what the world and others consider to be “good” = “everyone’s correct answer”.
In order to live more like yourself in the second half of your life, please find a job = your own job that focuses on “my correct answer” instead of “everyone’s correct answer” through this book.
