For millions of Americans past age 46, noon on January 20, 1993, may have promoted a sobering realization: suddenly they were older than the president of the United States. Age can be a powerful motivation in focusing one's attention on the fact that it is "time to get on with it." Clearly 1993 presents an opportunity to evaluate goals, set forth objectives and move forward with action agendas. Just as President Bill Clinton is formulating where he is going for the next four to eight years, so should the Americans. If President Clinton serves two terms, he will be in office until January 10, 2001-- 20 days into the twenty-first century and the third millennium.
