I’m taking a break in the series about Changing to provide a little context. You may feel perfectly content with your life. If you are then, you will have no interest in a tirade about making changes. I may be the odd duck but at every step in my life I questioned the path I was on. Was this the best I could do? Is there a better way?
Mostly I was too concerned about my responsibilities to risk getting off course. I was afraid of the road less traveled. Still I wondered. If I failed to take that road and my life to date has been conventional and dull, retirement means I have another chance. I have a lot of life left and few constraints. Where do I want it to go? And who do I need to become to get there.
You may not want anything more than you already have. If that is true then you don’t need change. If you ever asked yourself “Is this all there is?” , take a moment and read this post from a year ago. Are you satisfied with an ordinary retirement? And if the answer is no then get ready to change.
