A program of self-reflection; convenient and high impact, for late-career executives and professionals.
How to avoid remorse and “push start” on a successful professional and personal transition.
You’ve built a successful career. You’re proud of it, and you should be.
Like many professionals,you may be considering an exit strategy from your position,but you’re not necessarily ready to“retire?” Perhaps you’re thinking about moving onto another venture? Possibly even reinventing yourself? Then again,maybe traveling and playing a lot more golf sounds enticing. Or it could be that you’re just not sure yet.
What is for sure is that you’re at a point when you’re asking yourself some tough questions:
“What’s next for me?”
“What is my Plan B?”
“What should I do with my life?”
Think of other major life changes you may have been through:
Would you build a new house without a blueprint?
Would you move to a new city without planning logistics?
Now ask yourself:
- It took a lot of determination and focus to build my career; have I applied the same effort on my future? If not, why not?
- Would I be willing to take some time to prepare a successful transition into the next stage of my life? If not, why not?
- What does my next chapter look like? Will it be filled with new activities, new sources of identity, meaning and fulfillment?
- Why would I not want to create a plan for the rest of my life?
