I am in my late 40s and have been thinking about my own growth lately. It is not a fun feeling not knowing what you want.
Also, I currently have the opportunity to meet multiple successful clients in their 40s. They are telling me that they would like to think seriously about their growth. One of them who is the leader of a team of over 500 people from a world-famous company. Another is a successful leader who launched a new division in a large international company a few years ago.
Interestingly, they all say they have no clear idea of what they want to do in five years and can't prepare for the future. They are all satisfied with what they are doing right now, but they know it may not be the work they want to do for another 10-15 years.
They are asking questions:
Should I stay where I am by maintaining what I am doing?
Should I try something new as my last chance?
Should I start planning my next promotion?
They are busy managing large teams, ensuring that teams achieve their goals, and developing team members.
They prioritize teams, companies, and their direct reports over their own needs.
Unfortunately, there is no magical answer that applies to everyone. However, they realize that the experience of spending 30-45 minutes a week thinking about him/herself with someone who can listen and observe him/her is of great value.
