In your working life, time management is the fine art (and skill) of squeezing everything you have to do into one 24-hour day.
In retirement, that squeeze becomes more of a stretch. Suddenly, you have a surplus of time and a dearth of things to get done and few, if any, deadlines. And, it’s GREAT! At first. You spend 3 hours at the breakfast table – having coffee and reading the paper – without even realizing it. Before you know it, it’s lunchtime. You spend the afternoon reading the latest bestseller, maybe a lovely nap and then…. dinner!
That might sound like a nice way to spend your first few days of retirement but, let’s face it, you’re going to need more on your schedule if you want to survive 20, 30 more years.
The trick is to fill those hours with enough meaningful activities to keep you fulfilled, actively engaged, socially connected, healthy and wise… and all at a pace that allows you to breathe, enjoy the rewards of your hard work and be happy. You should manage your time so you’re always looking forward to something – that dream vacation, stimulating volunteer work, the next visit from your grandkids – but feeling real satisfaction at the end of every day.
Sounds like a tall order, doesn’t it?
Fortunately, that’s exactly what the Fit-To-Retire Readiness Roadmap was designed to do. With a certified Fit-To-Retire Coach guiding the way, this revolutionary program will show you how to fill your hours with meaningful activities, personalized and suggested just for you. The program starts with a readiness assessment that shows how prepared and enthusiastic you are in each of the five areas of retirement success: Self-Identity, Health & Nutrition, Social, Personal Relationships and Financial. Next, your coach will provide you with a customized checklist of things you should do before your retirement date to ensure a smooth transition. Finally, you’ll receive your Retirement Playbook containing recommended activities and pursuits just for you!
Lounging around all day is fine, if that’s what you really want to do. But, if you want to think big, achieve your dreams and try new adventures, Fit-To-Retire can help.
