Age excusitis, the failure disease of never being the right age, comes in two easily identifiable forms: the “I’m too old” vatiety and the “I’m too young”brand.

You’ve heard hundreds of people of all ages explain their mediocre perormance in life something like ihis: “I’m too old (or too young)to bread in now. I can’t do what I want to do or am capable of doing because of my age handicap.” Really, it’s surprising how few people feel they are “just right” age-wise. And it’s unfortunate. This excuse has closed the door of real opportunity to thousnads of individuals. They think their age is wrong, so they don’t even bother try.

The “I’m too old” variety is the most common form of age excusitis. This disease is spread in subtle ways. TV fiction is prodeced about the big executive who lost his job because of a merger and can’t find another because he’s too old. Mr Executive looks for months to find another job, but he can’t, and in the end, after contemplating suicide for a while, he decides to rationalize that it’s nice to be on the shelf.

Plays and magazine articles on the topic “Why You Are Washed Up at 40” are popular, not because they represint true facts, but because they appeal to many worried minds looking for an excuse.
