Perhaps the idea of “transforming your retirement” sounds like a lot of work. Perhaps it will cost money you are trying to conserve. Perhaps you are thinking, I can look at this closely later; reading it is interesting but doing the exercises and thinking deeply about this can wait.
My advice, my plea, is that you reconsider those thoughts. Beware of inertia setting in. Be alert to the tendency to slip into and stay in comfort zones which easily become ruts. Balance your desires to relax and enjoy retirement with your desire to make this stage of your life joyful and fulfilling in new ways. They are not incompatible impulses.
Mirriam Webster Dictionary defines inertia as:
+ lack of movement or activity especially when movement or activity is wanted or needed;
+ a feeling of not having the energy or desire that is needed to move, change, etc.
Yes, relax. Yes, enjoy. YES, look at what you really want for your 3rd act of life. You can do it all. Start a step at a time. Do the exercises in the previous blog posts under the “What You Bring With You to Retirement” and “10 Questions to Ask Yourself to Open Possibilities” categories.
