When you reach the end of your Intel career and make the shift into retirement, will you know what you can expect this next stage of your life to be like? For many it’ll be a mystery. But for those who plan and intentionally prepare for it (and I don’t just mean saving money) much of the mystery is removed. And retirement then becomes a gift to eagerly anticipate!
Life is continually bombarding us with demands for one of our most precious, and limited resources--our time. For a lot of people the demands of their work or business get filled first as the needs to generate a paycheck and build a career are important to them. Any remaining time gets allocated to other competing priorities like family, community, and one’s self. Generally it is this last one that ends up being most short-changed in the process.
I know this is how I operated during my years at Intel.
