As I have gone about collecting advice for newly or soon-to-be retired people, there seems to be a theme:
Don’t wait. Do it now. Step out of your comfort zone.
Wouldn’t we hate to get to the end, wishing we had done those things we had always dreamed of doing? Life truly is about collecting experiences. So I wish you a wonderful weekend, and I hope you enjoy every single moment of your Voyage!
Remember I told you about my friend who is nearing retirement? I tried give him as many pointers as I could. But then I came to the realization – “Hey wait! That’s just little old us, and we are pretty abnormal by some folks standards.
And it occurred to me that in this beautiful little blogosphere we share, there are people far wiser than me. So I’m going to put it out there for all of you!
What is the one piece of advice
you wish someone had given you
prior to your retirement?
I’m not talking about the financial stuff – there’s plenty of info out there about that. I’m talking about the stuff you would want your best friend to know if he or she was about to take this retirement voyage. I mean the nitty – gritty, day-to-day, “If only I’d known…” kind of stuff.
So I’d appreciate it if you’d leave your BEST advice in the comments. Then pass this post around to your retired friends so that they can add their two-cents worth! In the end, I’ll put together a great big list with links. Won’t that be awesome? I thought so, too!
