We still need purpose for our retirement. We do. This generation can't be Couch-Surfers, Porch-Watchers, Do-Nothing'ers. We need to MOVE.
Does that quote to the left scare you? Yep... it should. Nobody knows when life ends, so we must make the most of our time here.
Socrates said: "An unexamined life is not worth living." Maybe your purpose is simply to discover who you are and what legacy you were meant to leave to future generations?
Your purpose might be Grandpa... spending your time with grandkids, teaching them your values, and simply having fun.
You might need a community purpose... serve on a committee, volunteer in a local organization, serve your community in some manner.
You might want to work part-time, be a consultant, or start your own business or a simple blog. You can contribute to society if you teach online what you know... we all know lots more than we think we know.
What GIFT do you have that in some way can impact other lives?
Are you considering something totally new in life?
It doesn't have to be a big goal.
An online friend, Kathleen G, recently ran marathon after marathon... after being told to quit at the first one. She is aging gracefully... can't believe her! She started with one small goal, one marathon, and is running daily now with trainers and all.th
Your goal might be to help one neighbor a day.
Your goal could be simply visiting with shut-ins from your church each week.
OR Your goal could be WILD -- taking a trip to Europe for the first time. Starting your home business for fun and profit. Earning enough money with a part-time job to take your grandchild on a trip with you and you alone.
Good Ole Henry Ford said: "Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right." (I'm from the Motor City, I know his quotes...)
What has been bothering you, in your subconscious, that you want to do, but just haven't quite started yet? What do you want a gentle kick-in-the-fanny to get done?
What will you being today? Tomorrow?
There must be something you've always wanted to do?
