How To Build A Retirement Career

In keeping with the recent Mindset Monday blog posts dealing with retirement, I thought a repeat of last year’s piece “How To Build A Retirement Career” would be appropriate:

If you have passed the big Six-O birthday you are beginning to consider retirement from your main “Second Age” career, especially if you have spent many years working for a company or government.  Once you have made the decision on the date, you begin to wonder what will I do with the twenty or more years I have left on this planet? The question arises “How to Build A Retirement Career?”

You are looking forward to some things that you don’t have time for now:

  • Sleeping in
  • Extended vacations
  • Travel  to exotic places
  • More time with family
  • Just doing nothing
  • More time for golf, sailing or favourite hobby

But are you feeling confused about what you should be doing long term?  You’ve read all sorts of horror stories about what happens in our idle golden years and you’ve decided you want something better.  But what does that “better” look like? Now is the time to sort it out – before that day happens. Just imagine having a plan in place that really excites you!
