Making peace with the R-word

Ask a random sampling of 60-somethings what the word ‘retired’ means to them and you’ll get a variety of answers – some positive and others, well, not so much:

“Retired means old.  A lame duck. No more mojo.”

“That thing I want to be when I grow up!”

“Gold watch. Porch swing. Boring.”

“Sitting on the beach, drinking margaritas and no time card to punch ever again!”

In a sense, our mission at Fit-To-Retire is to help our clients redefine a word while reinventing themselves. The most rewarding part of our job is seeing a client, who could barely utter the R-word without shuddering, transform into a confident retiree with a comprehensive plan for a new, fulfilling life.

When a client completes the Fit-T0-Retire process – Readiness Assessment, Pre-Retirement Checklist, 100-Day Playbook – all negative connotations disappear. Retirement takes on a new, positive meaning. Something to look forward to and be proud of.

Bottom line: It’s simply semantics. Retirement is just a word. An old-fashioned word, at best. But, you don’t have to “retire.” You can reboot, reinvent, redefine, refresh and rejoice! But, to do so, you have to be fit in five key areas: Financial, Health & Nutrition, Self Identity, Social and Personal Relationships.
