- Stage one: Learning
- Covers the period of life where you are acquiring knowledge and learning the skills that are required to make your way in our society. Birth thru the end of schooling, whenever that is.
- Stage two: Living
- Covers the middle period of life where raising children and working to make that possible are the major foci of life.
- Stage three: Leisure
- Relaxing and enjoying the fruits of the first two stages. Retirement.

The question they all universally asked: "What will you do?"
And then I remind them: I have a boat.
