New Retirement Project

Creating meaning, purpose and adventure The Old Story of Retirement The old story that we inherit is that retirement is your reward for a lifetime of work. It is time to enjoy a life of leisure. Travel, golf, hobbies, family and friends, babysitting grandkids, and maybe some volunteer work to “stay busy.” Typically this works for a time, but sooner or later, one starts to feel that “something is missing”. You might ask yourself…”Is this it?” This old story can end in tragedy marked by depression and loneliness. Relationship problems may result, as well as the loss of energy and a preoccupation with health problems.  Times have change Why is the old model failing? First we live a lot longer. The old vacation model wears thin. Second, we live in a world of rapid change. The more change we have the more problems we have. Our well-being depends on our ability to be a problem solver. We need solutions not medication. The New Story of Retirement The new story for retirement is one of seeking meaning, purpose and adventure. It’s time to expand your horizons and spread your wings. Sure you relax for a while, take a trip or two, take time for some of the things in the old story. Then you start to working reinvent your life. Perhaps you realize that you have a ‘secret goal’, something that you have only dreamed about up to now. You may discover a creative part of yourself that has been repressed; an unopened gift, a buried treasure. In any case, now is the time. You rediscover who you are now that you are not identified with your old old role. You create a new life purpose that aligns with your true nature; a noble aim that becomes your driving force and your “ antidote to chaos’. You invent a new life story that is driven by your heart and soul. Happiness becomes the byproduct, not the goal. Perhaps it’s not a time to rest, but rather to go to work to relieve suffering in the world. “There’s a hole in the world that only you can fill”.  And time is ticking.

"It is changing my life. The process is continually evolving. I am wholeheartedly grateful.” - Becky Beaton “...a very useful way to guide me in another reinvention of my life! I discovered new ways to re-energize my sense of connection to the future!” - Lee Ann Johnson ‘ Even weeks after... I find myself growing still to create magic, a miraculous and inspired life.” - Annelies Ravensbergen “ The program was helpful for me to broaden my ideas about useful things I can do.” - Don Smith “ I found Michael to be generous with his time and expertise. The classes and his two coaching sessions really helped focus me in on what was important to me. Michael uses the Enneagram (personality system) to good effect. He took what we learned about my personality type to suggest ways for me to look at what was holding me back from opening up to the best part of myself (my higher aim). I feel hopeful and excited even about my continuing exploration of who I am as a retired person.” - Alison Sawyer Subscribe to New Retirement Blog here Comment from a reader “Another super valuable post. I bought the Future Authoring suggestion and began at once. I found it fascinating and surprisingly emotional. How seldom do we really check in with ourselves with interest and focus? Like meeting myself in a hallway. I have no idea what that means it just popped into my mind. Thank you, Michael. - Sandy Wrightman, coach. “Your writing is clear, brilliant and so useful” - Maggie Guzzi, retired teacher back to top.
