Retirement Life Planning After COVID-19: Where Are You And Your Practice Heading?
2020 was a dreadful year in so many ways. In the face of the pain, economic and personal losses and carnage of the pandemic, for many there was a silver lining. COVID gave us the opportunity to consider our futures and weigh our personal and professional priorities. Now, 2021 has finally arrived, bringing with it vaccines and hope, as well as thoughts of renewal and optimism for new opportunities and possibilities.
COVID also brought a veritable tsunami of thoughts of retirement and down-sizing among the baby boomer and beyond population. Attorneys are no exception. Are you now considering your next steps – pondering retirement or down-sizing, wondering whether to stay the course? Are you thinking about, but having difficulty envisioning, a productive, meaningful life in seniority? Perhaps now is the time to focus on those questions and ideas and give some thought and attention to resolving them.
This program is designed to do just that – to give 50+ attorneys an opportunity to think about their futures and provide tools and questions to assist in picturing their personal and professional lives after COVID. By focusing on strategies to get you started in determining your priorities and weighing your possibilities, we hope to stimulate your thinking and assist you in gaining insight into what you want and need as you age. With that insight you will be better prepared to formulate a plan to achieve your objectives and have the senior life you want and deserve.
