The author talks with a recent retiree, a “journalistic legend” in Philadelphia, about the difficulty of making this decision and the advice he would offer others. This is a situation and a question I get asked quite often.
I recently wrote a blog on this very topic when someone asked me when I was going to retire. My advice was very similar and I proposed asking yourself two questions to help know when you are ready. The question often isn’t easy to answer and it takes introspection and thought to begin to create a vision for our ‘Encore.’
If you need help answering this question, let me know. I’d be happy to help.
