Here’s a thought: retirement doesn’t mean the end. It doesn’t mean an end of self-importance or purpose, it just means a new chapter—a paradigm shift of what life is beyond long days and meetings and bosses. Unless you own your own business, and even then, you are not your business. You’re not solely defined by the question, “What do you do?” But, it doesn’t mean you should stop defining the answer for such an inquiry in your retirement era.
A quarter of retirees actually think life in retirement is worse than it was before they retired. Don’t be one of those people. Let your golden years shine when you set out a vision of what you want life in retirement to be.
