What we expect to achieve from our lives does vary depending on our age. Take a look at these criteria and let me know if you agree of not.

0-12 years of age:

Heroic: Be it based on the toys in these children’s bedroom or not is beside the point, but many children seek to become a fireman or soldier or even a nurse or a teacher based on the heroic nature of these jobs. They see that by working through their problems in an heroic way will lead them to these goals.

13-17 years of age:

Celebrity:  This is more based on the media available to them. Some seek to be football stars and others perhaps fashion models. All of these are an extension of the heroic element from their earlier years. Plus some cash of course. Problem solving will definitely be helped with a bit of cash….according to these guys.

18-30 years of age:

Financial:  These people have somehow decided that money is the key to all theirproblems, get the girl, get the car, get the house…it’s all about the money, and whatever shift they decide, it has to be lucrative. Many will go into tertiary education primarily for this reason. If that is the case, they will embark on a lengthy academic life to get what they want, no matter the cost.

31-40 years of age:

Confusion:  this is where the lawyers and doctors realized that good money doesn’t come easy and that there are plumbers and electricians driving the Mercedes not them. At the same time, they are burdened with mortgages and debts that find them over their heads in problems, not just financially but in marriages and children’s needs.

40-50 years of age:

Building citizens: Now comes the big shift back to their children or family. All parents really want for their children is that they become caring well-rounded citizens. They expect the education system to do that for them. They don’t necessarily want their children to fall into the same trap of chasing the money that they did. They are generally happy with what they see because their children are now entering their heroic phase of learning, job seeking and problem solving. Something they like as an heroic nature is the cornerstone of a great citizen.

50-60 years of age:

Being kind and loving: Though they find it hard to accept, strategic problem solving to this age group should be all about building kind people. They themselves have already been through a lot and their positions in society have been shaken and shattered in many ways. They may have money or no money and know it isn’t everything. What they do know is that being a kind and loving person is the most powerful a person should learn in order to get things done.

60-70 years of age:

Enjoy what you have: People in this age group tend to believe that learning is a life long thing and let it be about everything. Learning shouldn’t just be about going to school but in all facets of life. Pursue your dreams and let the problem solving be a part of it.

70-80 years of age:

Caring for others:  Just an extension of the ongoing citizen building theme, this age group are more about the care and consideration others are delivering. Often more of a moral element is there as these people believe that problem solving should hold a major core of fairness and helping others on a much larger scale. This they believe is the only thing that will make the world a better place.

80 ++ years:

Do what you like:  Life is short, follow your dreams, do what you can and confront it all as you go.
