Learned of this essay from Coach Dan John. Outstanding, worthwhile read. What stage are you in? I sent this to my two closest friends, and we agreed that we were all late in arriving at Stage 2. Now, at decidedly middle age (range 48 to 58), we are late Stage 2/early Stage 3. Here’s hoping I can stave off Stage 4 for a while yet.

Life is a bitch. Then you die. So while staring at my navel the other day, I decided that that bitch happens in four stages. Here they are.
