Important Message For Baby Boomers, "don't Retire Yet ... Refocus"
By Alan Tang
As an early "Baby Boomer" ie, one of those person beings born in the interval after World War II and pending the early 1960s, I've been bountiful a lot of thought during the last few being about how greatly longer I will work and what I'll do after I retire. It could be a dilemma; on the one hand, after 46 being at work, I've had enough effective for an employer 8am to 5pm every day excepting Saturday and Sunday. On the other hand, I'm in good strength and don't want to give work away just to finish the remainder of my existence pottering about in the patch.
So what's the result?
First, I've distorted my intellect about the idea of retirement. To me retirement is a soil word. It means exit work and lynching around intervaling to die.
After all, isn't that what people do? They bequeath work and after a few being pottering about, die. The certainty of murder is very good at creating focus. It's not that we morbidly focus on it all the time, but that we know it's receiving earlier and want to make the most of what time we have left.
I'm opinion more and more each day of "refocusing" instead of "retiring".
My idea in refocusing is to give my employer the flip and then do something I have that will keep me active, alert, and perhaps produce in some supplementary wages. fairly than refocus on one activity, which is slightly like exit one job for another, I'm effective on diversifying my activities.
I trust a tally of perhaps donations work - bountiful back something to institute, operation a small Internet custom, and some stunted-tenure, part-time work will flatter me. I want to select how greatly time I offer to something I do.
If you are a Baby Boomer like me, why not think about refocusing instead of retiring?
