Crisis #7 – Retirement

This really isn’t a job in an organization, but the Doom Loop still applies. All of us will eventually get to this place – for many of us it is our goal.

But retirement has its dangers. Many successful people are not good at nor do they like doing nothing if they haven’t planned ahead for what they would be doing after their careers. They find themselves right in the middle of Q4 where they are unhappy and miserable.

My advice to you is that before you reach this particular crisis, plan ahead for what you might be doing when you no longer are working for an organization. Find something that will put you somewhere between Q1 and Q2. That seems to work!
