You will agree with me that some of the seniors may not set any goal basically because retirement means shutting down completely. For some seniors, retirement means staying behind the camera and not being active in life. However, I would like to prove you wrong basically because retirement does not mean the end of life. What does retirement means to you? I believe that the retirement you are about to be achieve means different thing from another person who is about to retire.
Attainable retirement goals are those that you can achieve
When seniors set long term goals, we might view them as to be overambitious but the truth of the matter is that they should set medium to short term goals. Am saying this because medium and short term goals are attainable changeable and that means that you can achieve the outcomes or the results of what you had planned as early as possible. I would discourage one from setting long term goals because it might take a while before you realize the outcomes. You need to set attainable goals. If it is a business you want to start after you retire, then it is better to start small and watch your business grow rather than start big and stagnate at one particular point.
Whatever you plan should be done enthusiasm
Sometimes, we may decide to do something just so that other can see what we are doing after our retirement. This is wrong because we should not do things just to make other see that we are still active and to maintain our image. Instead, we should try to do those things that we like and know very well that they would benefit us in the long run. For example, if you are a chef who loves making cakes, then major on that basically because you love it. Your passion is a source of success after your retirement.
Never give up when goals are not attained
Sometimes, we tend to give up when goals we set are attainable but could be met since something went wrong somewhere. Considering that seniors are wiser than the young generation, you must be in a position to take those failures as stepping stones and a learning experience. It therefore important to keep trying and correct the mistakes or avoid barriers that could have barred you from attaining your goals.
