I had planned all of my working life to enjoy retirement. Working provided no rewarding experiences for me, it provided a roof over my head. I saw massive lay offs, poor economies, illness and death from stress related to the workplace. My father had a massive heart attack at work at the age of 58 I was 22 at the time.
One day I came into work and found a co-worker dead at his desk. All his family got was a small flower arrangement from the company. The next day the desk was cleared and filled again within a week. I was determined not to be a statistic.
There are so many organizations that need help and would appreciate your skill sets. Mentor a student, tutor, provide office skills to a not for profit organization. Start at just a few hours a week, make new friends.
Working should be a means to provide for your family or yourself it's not a lifestyle. If you have the funds to do this, enjoy the opportunity. Not many can.
