When the time came to decide on a title for my book, I remembered the question I got from several people I had interviewed: “What will I do all day?” That’s it! That is the question that keeps people going back into work every day instead of crossing the line into retirement. I had my title.
Not only is this my book title, it’s also the challenge many of us experience when we leave full-time work, and for the first time have lots of free time. And the answer is more than just filling up the hours with a bunch of activities.
If you want to figure out what you will do all day, consider these “doing” quotes:
“Those things that make your heart come alive; do them more often.”
“Pick something you aren’t just able to do; instead, pick something you feel like you were made to do and then do lots of that.” –Bob Goff
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” –Rumi, 13th Century Persian poet
Now give it a try. Have fun answering the following questions. Then come up with a plan for making this a part of what you do all day.
What makes your heart come alive?
What were you made to do?
What do you love to do?
