Saying 'goodbye' to your career!


To leave your career and manage your "retirement" is for some a difficult task! BUT if you apply the organisational skills you used at work or at home to bring up a family, you might just find the navigation a little easier I found 'Project management' was helpful to set goals, and met targets.......some of my observations....

  • You will probably experience anxiety in the early “transition” time

  • You will have a varying degrees of a sense of loss of purpose, relevance and confidence

  • You will miss the mate-ship of co-workers

  • You will feel you have made a big mistake

Relax all this will pass and here are some valuable tips to help you along the way, and in a relatively short period of time you will be wondering when you ever had time for work and be looking forward to the very best time of your life.

  • Don’t call the office to see how things are going?

  • Change your look – now is the time to reinvent yourself

  • Shop for a new “activities” wardrobe, it is so liberating

  • Write a 5 year plan with the milestone at 6 & 12 months then 2, 3 and 5 years out

  • Join clubs and activities

  • Indulge the hobbies you never had time for

  • Volunteer in the community

  • Don’t be too available to family and existing friends - you will never grow!

Be fabulous in whatever you do.....

...and remember...have a fabulous retirementLIFE....
