Some of us grow up knowing what we want to do, go to school or train in that discipline, and work in our chosen field. Some of us. But many of us fall into our careers by happenstance. I certainly didn’t grow up thinking, “Boy, I really want to place insurance for businesses, and train others to do the same!”
If you could have a second, or different, career what would you choose to do, and do you think you could make it work? Is it something you could do later in life?
As part of my retirement theme, I offer this weekly Thursday “Future Challenge” to get people of all ages thinking in general about their futures and/or retirement. Each challenge goes with a post of my own on the same general topic. Hopefully we’ll start some interesting discussions!
If you’d like to share what you think, or post on it, that’s great – and I’d love it if you’d share those thoughts in a post or comment (please tag posts TRS Future Challenge and link to this post) so others can also see them.
If you choose not to share them, that’s fine too – but with any luck, you’ll still gain some insight on where you’re headed (or would like to be), and how you can get the most out of your own journey.
