In the spirit of the start of Spring last week, Easter, and the first anniversary of my retirement this week, I’ve thinking about fresh starts and what we do with them.
One of the things people tend to think about when they’re considering retirement is free time. We all have things we’d like to do – or at least try – if only we had the time. Maybe it’s learning to play golf, or writing a novel, or painting, or getting a new camera and learning to use it. Maybe it’s travelling, or just reading that pile of books growing in the corner.
In the future, when you have the time, what hobbies or activities would you take on? Have you ever made a start on those things? What makes them appealing to you?
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.
For my own take on this week’s challenge, see my post Happy Anniversary to Me – or – I Can’t Believe I’ve Been Retired for a Year…
