Retirement: The Beginning Of An Exciting Journey

Here’s the thing about retirement, it’s not the end. It can be looked upon as the conclusion of one journey, and that is your work life. However, this doesn’t mean wrapping up all activities. Look how much you’ve achieved and learned in life, and we’re sure you have a lot to share. Well, we have a lot to gain. The young adults out there who think they’ve got it all planned out honestly don’t have it figured out yet. They’ll learn along the way just as you did. But this doesn’t mean that your wisdom won’t strengthen their foundation.

A retired Chartered Accountant once told us that it’s not only important to check the details in the books. It’s also important to check what’s missing and what’s being hidden from the reports. What one can learn from a retired professional is similar to this advice. If we don’t soak in the wisdom now, we’ll only know what’s shown to us. We will never learn the hidden lessons of harsher realities and experiences.

So, how can retired professionals share their knowledge and deep wisdom with the world?

Not A Preacher, Not A Teacher

Retired professionals are often looked at as yesterday’s glory. We believe they are the stepping stones of tomorrow’s legends. The legacy senior leaders have created for themselves is nothing short of a miracle waiting to be explored.

They may not be considered savvy with today’s technology or may not align with your modern views. But the milestones these savants have achieved are something you cannot ignore. Therefore, we believe that if you are on the verge of retirement or are already retired, it’s time to publish your book. No preaching, no teaching, but simply an avalanche of the best tips and real-life lessons you can offer to the younger generation about to fill your heavy boots.

Become An Author, Publish Your Legacy

Someone wise once said that Retirement is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of the open highway. So, make the most of it by sharing something eternal with the world. You owe this to yourself. But hey, don’t take our word for it. Just see the difference months after you’ve finally published your book.
