We no longer retire – but retirement is a whole new lifestyle.
We may love what we do and may intend to work on. It’s a choice you can make.
But the reality is, your career is waning! That’s not to say your experience is no longer needed ; there are interesting and different avenues to explore.
This third phase really is about Opportunity & Choice. The prospect of living longer, being in control sounds great. But the reality can be daunting. There has never been more opportunity, so planning couldn’t be more important.
Don’t just keep your head down and ignore it! Adopting a ‘wait and see’ policy only allows others to make your choices. Newly ‘retired’, the lack of a working structure brings a surfeit of time. it’s easy to say ‘yes’ without thought of what it entails. You may be drifting, but others will fill your time.
Is that really what you want?
This third phase is the start of a new and varied lifestyle. Because we all want different things, maybe with 20-plus years of opportunity and choice, start focusing on your future:
• Where to start?
• It’s your new lifestyle so what do you really want?
• If partnered, what do they want?
• Are there financial or other implications?
• Not ready to give up work? What are the options?
• What will put the fizz into your new lifestyle?
• and much, much more
Whether five years from any date or closer, take control. Ignoring is not a healthy option so talk to HR or click http://www.focus4change.co.uk/retirement/ for F4C's London dates.
All workshops provide a flexible in-house resource which can be tweaked to reflect specific training needs.
