Retire TO

October 9, 2018

Retire TO something, not just from something.

Ron Dickinson is a real life friend and colleague who retired before I did.

Like innumerable others, whether he’s aware of it or not, he’s a role model in this chapter of life.

For example, consider what he wrote recently and has graciously given me expressed permission to share with you here —

I find it easier to blame others than to take responsibility for my own actions.

— Yup, that’s true for most of us, most of the time.

But if we let him, Ron reminds us of the reality that in retirement we no longer have the luxury of pointing at the person down the hall, or to a supervisor, or someone who didn’t follow your directions; for the Retiree, those days are gone.

So what was always true, but avoidable for some, smacks the retiree in the face: “Each of you must take responsibility,” says Galatians 6:5.

There’s good news ahead. See you back here.
