My book, BOOMERangs, Engaging the Aging Workforce in America was just published recently. In it I provide some job tips for Baby Boomers. One of my favorites is, “Don’t Denigrate Yourself in the Workplace.” We all do it. As the workforce gets older, I increasingly hear my colleagues (I turned 55 last week) say, “woops, I had a senior moment” every time they can’t remember something. Why draw attention to your age? And did you really not forget anything when you were 35? And what did you really know at 25 that was worth remembering? Either change the subject or keep talking until you remember it. When Governor Rick Perry couldn’t remember the third agency he wanted to abolish, he should have kept talking about the two he could remember until it came to him. We BOOMERangs are taking care of our kids, grand kids and parents. We have a lot to remember! Let’s all agree right now to stop using the phrase, “senior moment.” It only makes us seem old to those around us.
