Someday When You Have Time On Your Hands
I’m hearing, “When will that be?”
But we work with a lot of retirees and I see a lot of them with the similar time management issues as working folks – wasting too much time. Retirees take your time management skills with you into retirement when you leave the work place.
1. Continue to set goals, complete with deadlines and schedules.
2. Don’t retire from achievements. Make up for the years when you were working and didn’t have time to pursue personal goals. Read the books you never got around to. Travel. Learn to play golf or knit.
3. Continue using a planner or calendar and schedule time for activities and people you love. Without the structure of a workplace it will be necessary to build your own.
4. Spend time with friends and loved ones. Surround yourself with younger people will make you feel younger in turn.
5. Keep exercise as a priority. It affects memory as well as physical condition.
If you are not “of age” yet, plan now to ensure your retirement years will live up to your expectations. Planning your future retirement time now is called daydreaming.
