As we approach retirement, much time is spent daydreaming about a life of leisure when we have no one to answer to but ourselves. Happiness seems inevitable when we are in charge of our own destiny. It is common to spend the years approaching retirement creating a plan so your financial house is in order, but less common to create a mission statement describing the purpose for the next stage of your life.
A wonderful web site I have recently discovered is https://www.theonequestion.com/. It includes a wealth of information from a test to discover your purpose, to links to articles, books and interviews so each of us can discover our own passion and begin to live a truly fulfilling life. It’s never too late to start!
