The San Diego Union Tribune reports the “National ‘village’ concept for aging in place is catching on in San Diego.” Is this form of retirement housing a solution to aging-in-place everywhere?

    • Thanks for the feedback, Jamie Cordon. Inspiration helps us pursue all of the aspirations in our life. We’re currently reading Simon Sinek’s, “Start with Why.” Sinek distinguishes between formal authority that uses manipulation to motivate and leaders that inspire. Inspiration produces better results as individuals and for teams or cultures. We love motivational TED talks too.
