If you find that one (or several) of these questions describe where you are, Life Planning may open the door to your future:
Adjusting to a major life change?
Full of dreams and ideas but lacking a path forward?
Contemplating retirement from your current work?
Concerned about downsizing, job loss?
In a rut?
Restless and not fully engaged?
Yearning to learn?
Desiring to be passionate about something?
Wanting to make a difference?
Wondering if there is a better or different way that you can live your life?
Life Planning can be invaluable to those in midlife needing to address these dimensions:
- Purpose, meaningful work
- Community service, civic engagement
- family relationships
- friendships, affiliations
- physical health, fitness, nutrition
- emotional, spiritual well-being
- learning and creativity
- recreation,leisure, travel
- financial needs, resources
- lifestyle, location, housing
We call this life stage the “3rd Age”- the time between 50-75 when we can revisit and focus anew on the 3-legged stool:
- Financial Planning
- Health Planning
- Life Planning
You may feel like a pioneer, contemplating an elected or unelected transition midlife and clear that the experience of your parents is quite different than your circumstances and world today. Our generation is developing a new template with countless options for this 3rd Age, many choosing to continue working, but with new parameters, others choosing
to retrain, start and grow businesses, travel and volunteer, locally, nationally and internationally, to name a few. With increased longevity, changing economic times and terrific “social capital” and resilience in our 50+ population, we are rewriting the face and meaning of that phase called retirement.
