What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it’s fame and money, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you’re mistaken. If you can free up about 12 minutes of your time, you should listen to Robert Waldinger’s TED talk on, What makes a good life?
As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger shares three important lessons learned from the study. His talk helps to reinforce the importance of reevaluating what is important in life. This talk has the ability to resonate with anyone regardless of the phase of life that they are in. However, if you haven’t reevaluated things sooner, retirement is an ideal time.
Retirement is the phase of life where you have the most control over your time. In fact, freedom from time constraints is the central dream of retirement, isn’t it? To get the most out of this phase of your life, retirees need to identify who and what matters the most to them, and then be intentional with their time; herein lies the power of retirement coaching.
