Life – Stages – what it looks like !! ??

Couple of days I read a Google+ posting titled  Stages of Life., with an eye-catching, revealing and thought-provoking image:

Stages of Life

Obviously, the first thing my mind recalled was product life cycle:

Prodcut Life Cycle

And that led to a search of similar images on internet.

Here are some that I found quite interesting:

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. Hi Ashok,
    Very nice post, I’m sure there would be other representations to be found! I for one like to represent the life stages as those of a man climbing a mountain, but instead of having a picture of reaching the top at the “acme of life” and then having to go down again, I see the same mountain with its top hidden in the clouds, and men climbing towards the top, and naturally finding it most difficult towards the top – having climbed all the way – but also with some figures who would have decided to stop, or not to climb any further than a certain height, so that by climbing you would pass fellow climbers of all ages, some going faster, some slower, some having stopped and some having resumed… There would also be a few ladders falling from the clouds for the purpose of others!
