With the dynamics of longevity working against early retirement, the retirement age currently sitting at 67 is now being revised upwards. The maths of work for 35 years and then being retired for 40 plus years may no longer add up. Do you think you have the energy to keep working past the age of 70?
The secret to creating more energy in your working life could be taking a planned midlife gap year. It could give you that time out to rejuvenate without derailing from your retirement plans.
The tradeoffs include:
- spending time with the family;
- a change of pace of life;
- just slowing down;
- or getting some education
can be enough to give you the power to continue on with your career.
Lissette has created a 16-page educational guide “The Midlife Gap Year: How to take a break and still feel financially secure” to inspire business owners and leaders to take a long-term view of their career and life fulfillment.
