Finishing Average vs. Finishing Memorable

Ordinary people think merely of spending time. Great people think of using it. ~ Unknown

I pinned a cartoon to one of my Pinterest Boards that got me thinking. If you are a Baby Boomer, your career is going to end in one of three ways:

  • You are going to retire
  • You are going to be laid off or quit
  • Your job will become obsolete and you’ll need to find something else to do.

Have you asked yourself…what then?

  • If you retire at 65 and you have 20 or 30 (or more) years of good health, what are you going to do with your life?
  • If you quit or you are laid off and it takes 18 months to two years to find another job, what resources do you have to bridge the gap?
  • If your job becomes obsolete, what new work will you do? What education or training will be required?

What would shift the rest of your life from finishing average to finishing memorable or what I call “sexy” in any of these scenarios?  You are the only person who can determine that.

Finishing average will age you quicker. Finishing memorable (sexy) will keep you feeling young, happy and fulfilled.

Shifting from average to memorable starts with making one simple choice to do what you love. Follow up with another exciting choice, and another, and another with no agenda other than to explore what you are passionate about or want to be passionate about. Along the way, you just might discover the path to a Sexy Second Act career or you may be inspired to build a Sexy Second Act business that adds a sparkle to your eye and a spring to your step.

My friend Teri calls that process following the “golden thread”.

I call it sexy. And memorable.

So…how do you want to finish?
