I honestly think that after all of these years, I have finally gotten my job in perspective. It is important,but it isn’t me and is not the most important thing in my life. I hope that this can continue.

I know several people that have retired recently or are in the process of retiring within the next 2 months.
The ones that already have retired look great and constantly talk about all of the things that they always wanted to do, but couldn’t while they were working. Some of those things include traveling, fishing, participating in sports, working out more often, reading, volunteering and playing musical instruments.
The ones that are retiring soon are prioritizing what they are going to do first. While I understand that setting goals for this time of their life is important, I begin to wonder why so many people wait so long to do these activities that make them so happy.
Money isn’t a reason because most people have less money when the retire or at least are concerned enough about their financial future that they don’t waste it.
I asked a few people and they said that time was the issue.
Many of these people work 7.5 hours a day and time prevents them from fishing, golfing, volunteering and working out? I think time is the best excuse, but not the reason.
I wont be retiring for at least 17 years, but I plan to keep things in perspective by doing as many of my retirement activities as possible…. Now.
