Think about your future retirement date, whenever that will be for you.
Mine is likely to be in around 20 yrs time (2040.)
Imagine you’re at YOUR retirement age now, looking back over the past 20-30 years or so.
How will you feel at that point, looking back at how you lived your life till then? Will you feel like it went by in a flash/haze of working crazy hours, spinning multiple plates and juggling everything else in your life order to satisfy your employer or image of success? Perhaps you will feel like you slept-walked (or sprinted) through it, head down, just focusing on whatever was next to meet the demands of your busy job. Perhaps you will feel like you’ve only just woken up, at retirement age, to the choices you made during your working life that got you here?
All good if you actively and consciously made those choices, and are happy with the outcome.
For those who are frightened they’ll arrive at retirement and not yet have lived the life they really want, maybe now is a good time to pause and reflect.
What do you REALLY want? Is the career ladder and financial success the only thing? Stop putting off things till tomorrow (life, family, real joy.) Instead, find out NOW how you can live the life you really want. Call a coach.
