and magnified the frequency collectively, until it grew in impact
and in size all over the globe. When our timing is right and we are
able to come together with like-minded people, members of our
tribe, those who are on the same frequency, we can reshape the
world beyond our imagination.

"The future of the world is in the
hands of our aging population..."

Those of you who are these leaders are in an even better position to guide this conversation and, even more, to go beyond lip
service and act. How will you change your business, your community, your country to incorporate an active aging workforce, to
harness the wisdom and experience of the people who just might
be the only ones who can jump-start our economy and protect
our Earth (and harness other planets) for generations to come?
The future of the world is in the hands of our aging population,
and ultimately that describes all of us. So how about it? Are you
ready to save the planet and our way of life?

The time is now

In 1826, as soldiers marched across a bridge that spanned the
River Irwell in England, the bridge began vibrating in time with
their steps, ever more violently until the bridge collapsed. From
that point on, British soldiers were ordered to break step when
marching across a bridge.
What happened was a physics phenomenon called "resonance." Not only were all of those soldiers vibrating the bridge at

The big question, then, is how do we know when the timing is
right?
You simply have to keep acting in some way on your vision.
The bridge never would have collapsed if the soldiers hadn't been
moving forward in lockstep across it. Each of us must determine
when we are in sync with what truly matters vs. going over the
cliff like lemmings running amok or soldiers not choosing to break
their step.

"The big question, then, is how do we
know when the timing is right?"

This same principle applies to great movements and epochal
transitions. The First Wave Feminist movement (as mentioned at
the book's outset, this is better known as the Suffrage movement,
which extended voting rights to women across the United States),
civil rights, the 1960s peace movement, the Second Wave Feminist
movement, and so on. The Occupy Wall Street movement was a
perfect example of this phenomenon: People who were essentially
