Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A guy retires. He’s bored. He needs something to do.
Actually, don’t stop me. This story has a happy ending.
A new blog post for WiseTribe. NYTimes.com recently ran a feature about a bored retired man who determined to work as an entrepreneur with someone from a different generation. His success story shows a good match of experience and an intergenerational mindset can lead to a whole new way of living.

You like it? I’m pleased. If you think it’s good, that makes me happy. If I made it public, then I probably think it’s good too. You know what makes it good? Time. Good takes time. I’m the writer because you didn’t have the words. You asked me to write it. I took on what you could not or would not. If you could have done it then you would have done it. The time and the craft put into making it good — writing — was mine. It is now offered to you. Treat it wisely, justly and fairly. If that’s what you are. If you’re not those things, then reveal that to us all.
