I read about a retiree who complained about always being bored.
She couldn’t find her purpose.
In fact, a few days after she retired, she started looking for work.
It made me wonder: are we so caught up in saving for retirement that we forget to plan this stage of our lives?
The things we want to see, do and achieve?
The Japanese call retirement a second life.
It’s fitting, because it really is our second chance.
Life on our terms.
Being in the financial services profession, I know it’s easy to get caught up in saving for retirement and making sure we have the funds to see us through 30, 40 or even 50 years of not earning a salary.
