RETIREMENT COACHING – DEBBIE DRINKARD GROVUM – Work vs. life – I didn’t expect that to be a concern as I transitioned into semi-retirement. With all the available hours I used to spend working, I was more concerned with filling them than balancing them.
But a funny thing happened on the way to my semi-retired life. I discovered more to do and learn and experience than I had hours in the day. More time staying healthy-exercising, preparing good food, meditating. More time visiting grandchildren. More time volunteering. More time socializing. More time learning and experiencing. More time enjoying the arts. More time doing activities I never quite had the time to do when I was working full-time.
I am delighted to discover that filling my days with meaningful activities is not a concern – just the opposite, in fact, and I still need to find balance in how I spend my time. With a few tweaks, the strategies I used when I was working full-time help me find that sweet spot of a balanced life. Click here to learn about these strategies.
