When most people think of retirement planning they usually think of “money”. Yes, having enough money to maintain one’s lifestyle is important but also of critical important is the non- financial aspect Many retirees neglect to plan for that aspect. How are you going to spend your time? How are you going to remain satisfied and fulfilled? Are you just going to putt around or are you going to find purposeful and meaningful ways to enjoy the retirement you deserve?
Some people enjoy “putting” around and it is OK for awhile. Others become very bored and sometimes become depressed and lonely. Only you know yourself. If you want you have a rich and meaningful retirement I suggest that you start thinking about it now. Revisit some of your dreams that you have put on the backburner because you did not have the time to pursue them. Begin placing them on the front burner of your life and your life can become more joyful, meaningful and purposeful.
You don’t have to wait for the day when you finally leave the job, you can begin looking at those DREAMS NOW!
START by taking an introspective journey to explore and reactivate those forgotten dreams. If you think that you have accomplished all your dreams then make a list of all you want to be, to do and to have. This will start to trigger some creative thoughts.
