    687 Covid-19

    It is past time that I try to think a bit more critical about Covid-19 and how it affects retirement. We all feel the pressure and changes in our lives. There are people who refuse to accept the reality of the situation. They refuse the statistics and the science. The rest of us have to deal with the tragedy as it is.

    684 Try Something New

    683 The "Hot Generation"

    How does one reason with someone who doesn't believe in reason? I wish I had the answer to that question. We retired people have lived through a sea-change in acceptable methods of thinking.

    682 Retirement & Guilt

    It isn't easy this ‘enjoying of the moment’. Life has prepared us to plan ahead. Make preparations. We concern ourselves with what may happen. The ability and inclination to enjoy the moment is drummed out of us at a very early age.

Inspiring and Pracrical

The advice Del offers for the important things in retirement like maintaining a purpose intentionally, following routines, uncovering what makes you passionate or happy make me look forward to retirement. Sure, having money in retirement is important., and as Del says, there are plenty of other podcasts that explore that topic. But what about the quality of your life in retirement? Del makes me think about this on the regular, and I feel like when the day comes, I will spend some of the happiest time of life in retirement, and that will be thanks to Del’s advice.
