Don’t wait until retirement to do what you want!

Start doing what you want to do after retirement now

If there’s one piece of advice I’d like to give anyone, it’s to start doing what you’d want to do in retirement now.

Do something you love, never have to work a day in your life, something like that? Or at least one version of it.

The traditional work method, work until you’re 60-odd and then have the time to do what you always wanted, well, that doesn’t quite cut it for me. For starters, I could end up like my dad, which I decidedly do not want to do.

A few years back, when I got the wake up call of my life, my dad dying mere years before retirement, I really started to wonder what I wanted to do with my life. More specifically, I thought about what I’d like to do when or if I was retired. And you know what?

I’m already doing it.

Not only will you get a head start, which can be important with endeavours involving a personal brand, crucially you also get to see whether you even like it or not.

And who knows, you may even find a way for it to support yourself financially. Wouldn’t that be a way to retire!
