Mini-Retirement: You Can Boost Your Productivity With Small TravelsFebruary 11, 2018 / byPuget Sound Life / Categories : Puget Sound General
Ever had the opportunity of attending a party meant for retirees? These are parties that are organized for people who are at least 60 years old. With their working days over, all they think of is how they can play golf or perhaps get a condo at the beach.
I may not be such a great fan of golf, and I am already living at the beach, but there is nothing like missing in action for a while. I had recently undertaken a seven month trip to Europe for that single reason.
Majority of persons will likely call my trip an extended vacation, but I instead see it as a mini-retirement. I got maximum satisfaction from my visit to Europe which is unlike what most tourists do because they don’t take out time to enjoy their stay. If this is your first time of coming across the word, then let me tell you what it is and how it can be of help to you.
With mini-retirements life always has more to offer you
Vacations are different from mini-retirements it is because while holidays are short, these are very long. It is any trip between one month and six months, though I spent up to seven months in my case. During my mini-retirement, I had the opportunity of participating in so many European activities.
How to plan for a mini-retirement
Planning your first mini-retirement, know your objectives, and it is very essential. That was how I got off with mine. I never rushed the process. I made up my mind that Europe was a place to go and spend some time. As such, I had to work very hard for my dream to come true. I had to be 100% sure my online businesses were running as I expected, coupled with enough savings to help me foot any unexpected bills.
With the current harsh economic climate, it is challenging trying to plan for a one. But nothing good comes easy. Therefore I think now is a good time to start planning in this regards.
Enjoying your life to its fullest
My reason for trading my corporate life for being on the internet is because I want to live it to the fullest. Being your boss is all you want in life. I intend to take another mini-retirement if I have the cash. And a trip to the Croatian / Greek island or a road trip in the U.S will be just perfect. I have a feeling I can equally make this happen since my first ever plan was a complete success. Hence, am ready to work hard now so I can make it happen.
