Retirement: the end or the beginning?
I shared my vision about finishing strong a few weeks back.I opened up about how I view my life in the home stretch and what I want to make of it. It wasn’t that I think you will share my vision about what that means. I wanted to start a dialogue with others that are entering the final laps in their life. Are you content to coast to the finish? Or do you want to pick up the pace, pull out the stops and cross that line in a blaze of glory? Now that blaze of glory may look different to you. Maybe it won’t look like a blaze of glory to some but to you it means that you invested your time in making the final chapters in your life story the best ones.
But what does finishing strong mean to you?
If that is you then, I want to know what that means for you. I opened up about how I view my life in the home stretch. I know for me it doesn’t mean 24-7 drudgery. I want to be enjoying the world and my family, making memories and building a legacy. For me that includes building a community of like minded people and making some money. Your idea may be completely different but if you don’t want your last years to dribble away, we can help each other. We may not agree on our goals or activities but we will share the vision of finishing strong.
