Wondering why we are all meant to be an Old Age Pensioner at 65-ish? "The “problem of old age” rose to public consciousness during the Great Depression, when mass unemployment left millions of aged Americans unable to support their families. ... Social justice advocates lobbied the government to provide stipends to those deemed too old to work. But how old was too old?

In the 1930s, most doctors and scientists argued that old age should be defined biologically... In the end, though, economics won out over science: Only by limiting government assistance to those 65 and older could a national pension program be financially sustainable. And so with the passage of the [US] Social Security Act in 1935, and later Medicare in 1965, age 65 became officially “old.”"

Now that research mentioned it - I will concur that your office organisation does impact your future. If you don't have one, let's create one. If you have one, let's get it sorted. If it is a complete 'disaster', we can work it out together before any unnecessary judgement.

Rightsize shared Amazing Things's post.
Sheesh! This is a 10MB reel of data from the 1960s which holds the average size of 5 - yes just FIVE, (okay, maybe SIX) - digital photos sitting on our devices. No wonder my photo organising clients have no idea of what they have and how to deal with it. #photoorganizing Let's get it sorted APPO Members

Rightsize shared the Really Helpful Club's post.
So looking forward to sharing how I can help the Really Helpful Club "Sandwich Generation" Event next week in support of The Silver Line charity. As the recommended professional decluttering and organising service to over 14,000(!) Really Helpful Club members for 2 years now, it is wonderful to bring the synergies of my volunteer training and work with The Silver Line, my clientele at the Really Helpful Club and my own financial management team at SJWM all in one place on Tuesday 6 November.
