2018 Do Something
Being in the travel business I see a lot of people travelling and cruising these days. A good percentage are retired or near retirement.
This is great and they deserve to enjoy their life and what life brings.
I also see a number of clients, restless, not unhappy but bored or anxious, and uncomfortable with their lot. They have been busy most of their life and although retirement has been in their plans for sometime it is not how they expect to feel.
Deepak Chopra said, "The seventh law of success is "to do nothing and achieve everything" and although this is a play on words, to do nothing is not in most people i know or deal with DNA.
So what is the answer?
Everybody is different, but my experience is that we still must have a purpose each day to energies ourselves.
So take a minute, take a time out and find your purpose. This is one of the hardest things to do. Be honest with yourself, and ask yourself what is your purpose. Without a purpose it is like going on a bus or train ride without knowing the destination.
So if like me your in the baby boomers generation it is not too late to make some changes. So your last quarter in your life is kicking with the wind and not tacking into it. It is really as simple as that.
Take a course on line, take some golf lesson if you love golf, talk to your grandchildren about your life experiences etc
I can't tell what to do, but i can suggest to you do something, it makes life so much more fun.
