Did you see the following quote on Facebook? Someone was passing it around.
Them awkward days between Christmas and new year when you don’t know what day it is, or what you’re doing with your life.
Did it ring true with you over the holidays last month? Did you think that the Christmas break was too much? Christmas eve and day were fantastic! Family, friends, food, fun. Perhaps boxing day was also fun.
But then what happened?
Everyone went home, or you went home. You played with your new toys for a while, read the new book or magazine, watched a few movies, ate and ate and ate; then what? Many companies closed for the entire week and so you were off until January 4th and, you hate to admit it but, you were bored stiff. You couldn’t wait to get back to work, back to your buddies and eight hours a day that were already planned for you. After all, relaxing all day with nothing to do is tough!
If you think the days between Christmas and new year’s were awkward, consider what it will be like for you when you retire … Exactly the same, only much, much more. Days of it, weeks of it, months of it. Dare I even say YEARS of it.
Retirement won’t go away, so why not start planning for it now, so you WILL know what you’re doing with your life. I wrote Retire Fit, Fit, & Fit to help you get in financial, physical and emotional shape for what I hope will be years of fun for you.
