In our study and practice of personal growth programs and ideas, one of the key purposes is the achievement of self-actualization and the realization of our full potential; but for many, this is an effort filled with uncertainty.

We may feel that our life is passing by at a rapid rate and we haven’t hit our zone yet.

Actually, it’s never too late.

A new study reported in the New York Times suggests that our best work may be ahead of us.
Reporting in the Times Smarter Living newsletter, editor Tim Herrera comments:

“A study published in Nature found that about 90 percent of people will experience a “hot streak” in their career, which is that span of a few years when a person’s greatest, most effective work is produced. And — here’s the good part — your hot streak can appear at any point in your working life, meaning that it’s never too late (or too early) to hit your peak.”

The study examined the careers of artists, film directors and scientists.

Here’s a link to the newsletter which provides more detail:
