For the personal
aspects of retirement
People are living longer and staying younger. Retirement may be the longest period of your life. Many retirees finish their bucket lists and then struggle to find purpose, meaning, and relevance. Here's a recent news item about this:
Retirement is a time of enormous, often unanticipated, change. Retirement may seem as easy as falling off a log and for some people it is while others wake up one day with nothing to get them out of bed.
We're offering you our insights about the retirement experience so that your lifestyle in retirement, and your relationships with people who are important to you, can be optimised.
We recommend seeking retirement coaching at any time from 45 onwards. This is a rule of thumb based on an average retirement age in Australia of nearly 63 for recent retirees.
An early start will give you plenty of time to prepare for the changes that retirement will bring.
After you retire you may like to review your situation at 1 to 5 year intervals.
Getting people to think about their future selves can be like getting them to think about a stranger.
Yet most people get the need to prepare financially for retirement. And the need for retirement coaching and a complementary way head for the non-financial aspects of retirement is just as important, if not more so.
45+ can be a good time to start thinking about, preparing for, and imagining what could be the longest part of your life. Just like financial planning, the farther out you start the greater will be your dividend and the fewer the surprises.
One to three hours of retirement coaching every 5 years will work for most people.
How ever far or near you are to retirement, whether years, months, weeks or days, or if you’re already retired, retirement coaching can help you to better harvest or manage the rewards and quality of your retirement.
