Do older people marginalise themselves? I think they do.

The e-mail said 'Watch Online: Unleashing the $8 Trillion Longevity Bonus' Presented at the 2016 ASA Aging in America Conference this general session video offers insights into retirees' giving preferences and habits, how giving gives back, the dynamics behind the three forces that will drive the coming giving surge, and the individual, organizational and community implications.

Sounds interesting? Pity that for some reason it is only available to selected domains and mine isn't one of them.  As you can see from the Sorry message.

Why bother sending an e-mail in the first place?

You can watch the next video and it is worth watching. Dychtwald on the way older people marginalise themselves. 

I think he is right. There is no doubt that a lot of older people withdraw into their comfort zone. We can all conjecture why this happens. What is clear is that you have to work harder to keep engaged as you get older.
