It's unwise to think we can retire away from using our abilities at work and not miss them. Instead, a Repurposed retirement is an extension of those abilities to add more value to others.
Abilities can be broken down into two categories:
- Talents. Talents are God-given. These are things that come naturally to you. Has anyone ever told you, "You've always been good at...." (fill in the blank).
- Skills. Skills are learned and developed throughout life. Your job and career have honed-in on these skills and abilities.
We have found it helps people to see both talents and skills as they start to identify where they can Repurpose in retirement. At Taatjes Financial Group we take pride that we not only help clients plan financially for retirement, but coach and guide them into a retirement of purpose and fulfillment.
