The Legacy Project

Tracey Good News

What do you get when you ask 1,500 people over seventy this question, “what are the most important lessons you have learned in your life?” You get The Legacy Project, which is some of the best “lessons for living from the wisest Americans” ever recorded. This research was the brainchild of Karl Pillemer, Professor of Gerentology in Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College. The useful “lessons” can be found on the on the website www.legacyproject.human.cornell.edu. Compiled by category, youʼll find wisdom on everything from love and marriage to avoiding regrets. While there may not be too many surprises for you here, perhaps you feel some validation. Age does have its perks!
