I found an old “Investment Planning” notebook with 20 forms. On each of them a graphic shows the average productive potential of a person over a period of 85 years, measured by 3 main stages in human life: education, work and retirement.
I decided to intervene these forms, introducing a new concept: 'Parenthood'. By doing so, it becomes visually and graphically evident the difficulty of reconciling family life with professional development.
