Hello, Steve. (You don’t mind my calling you Steve, do you? Hope not.) Happy 62nd birthday! So, you’ve decided to retire – Congratulations! And the office staff held a big party in your honor last week? Let the fun begin! You really enjoyed the party, and there were lots of people wondering (and feeling a little jealous) about your future plans. Jerry from HR asked, “What are you going to do with all that free time?” You told him that you are going to enjoy not having a schedule, finally be able to travel, and maybe even begin training to run a half marathon!
You even mentioned something about taking some classes to learn a new language, volunteer, or even start a little business! So many choices. As you left, you felt pretty good about things. You promised everyone that you would keep in touch and stop by once in a while to see what was going on. After all, 16 years together bonds people. On the way home, a voice in your head that sometimes talks said, “Ok, Steve, so what are you going to do with all that free time?” You stop at a light, turn up the radio, and say out loud, “Ok, stop it. I made the right decision! I’ll finally have some freedom for me.”
If you are so happy that you will have a clear calendar and not be tied to a schedule, turn to page 2.
If you feel a little worried because you do get bored easily and often think “What am I going to do now?’ turn to page 3.
