You can't pack a lifetime into a retirement

That’s a lesson I learned from my good friend Carl.

He didn’t wait.

Here’s a simple and profound truth: WE GROW OLD AS WE HAVE LIVED.

You won’t change all of a sudden when you retire. You will end up being the sum of all those days spent earlier.

Try this: go and ask retired people you know. Ask them what their dreams were when they were young and if they realized those dreams when they retired. Probably not. Why? Because they waited all their lives and now it’s too late, they grew old as they lived. Like most people, they will go to their graves with their music still inside them.

If you still have dreams, start working on them right now. If you don’t, start looking for some.
