Some thoughts from John Gardner, a very interesting writer

With an eye to the mystery of why some people and not others manage to live with vitality until the end, and to the fact that life metes out its cruelties and its mercies with an uneven hand, Gardner writes: One must be compassionate in assessing the reasons. Perhaps life just presented them with tougher problems than they could solve. It happens. Perhaps they were pulled down by the hidden resentments and grievances that grow in adult life, sometimes so luxuriantly that, like tangled vines, they immobilize the victim. Perhaps something inflicted a major wound on their confidence or their sel ..read more

 There are three pillars that support a fulfilling retirement:  ·      Health ·      Wealth ·      Factor X I wish I could rhyme Factor X with the other two but, until I can, Factor X is the name for all those emotional aspects of retirement that go beyond health and wealth. You will meet some of them in this article. I won’t discuss wealth, as I want to leave to one side all those money issues to do with how long you will live, the potential for rising inflation and the perennial issue of investment uncertain ..read more

Autonomy-the sequel

In the previous article on Autonomy I mentioned how I went to my dictionary to find a definition of the word autonomy. I concluded it means the same as freedom. I then made the point that a retired person has the opportunity to gain lots of freedom. But that cuts both ways. A lack of freedom can come at a cost, for example causing issues within a family. I have an example. There is a Japanese expression called “Wet Leaf Syndrome”. Just imagine a Japanese “salaryman” who retires after 40 years and, lacking a sense of freedom, follows his wife around each day. To the wife that might feel like a ..read more

What is autonomy and what does it mean in retirement?

I was at lunch recently with friends, where we found ourselves discussing the idea of autonomy. After that discussion I thought to find out what the word “autonomy” actually means. So I went to my dictionary and found that it means setting your own laws. OK, maybe that applies at the level of a state or country. Fortunately the dictionary goes on to explain that autonomy for the individual is close to the concept of freedom. That’s the definition I want to work with in this article. All this got me thinking how does freedom change over the life of an individual? At the risk of overgeneralizing ..read more

Mindset in retirement

Fortune article on key mindsets of retirement March 2024 The idea of retirement as envisioned by our parents is undergoing a radical change. Once viewed as the last chapter before death, it has now morphed into an intermediate phase that is no longer synonymous with old age or complete inactivity. Today, a typical retiree can reasonably expect to live another 20 to 30 years, ideally in good health, provided they continue to exercise both body and mind. In this context, the word “retirement” seems obsolete. It is perhaps more fitting to refer to it as the “third half” of life. However, retireme ..read more

The upside of regret: How a painful emotion can lead to better mental health By Stacey Colino December 31, 2023 Washington Post   As 2023 comes to a close, you may find yourself conducting a personal year in review, taking inventory of what went well and what didn’t. Which means you may end up experiencing regret.   Regret can be painful, but it can also be a powerful tool for self-understanding and change. “If you pay attention to regret, you can learn from your mistakes and make decisions and handle emotions better in the future,” said psychologist Robert Leahy, director of ..read more
