The difference between dreams and reality is action
Are you ready for a change but not sure about your options? Time to think about the next stage of life but not sure how to get started?
I know the feeling! There’s lots to look forward to but making choices can be a bit daunting.
My programme isn’t about money (I can recommend a financial adviser for that); it’s about taking control of your future health and happiness. Taking time out to think about your options and make the most out of life.
This is not navel-gazing – it’s a practical step-by-step process to create a plan that works for you.
If not now…then when?
You’ve probably seen a financial advisor, looked at what your pension will allow you to do, and dreamed about your next adventure, but how will you make it happen? Are you really too busy to get clear about what you want and how to achieve it? Can you afford not to invest time in that?
Research tells us that being happy and fulfilled is key to mental good health and longevity. As the first generation to truly have choices about retirement and a new third phase of life, you will want to make sure you make the most of it.
Time of your life is a practical programme which gives you the time and the tools to figure out what is next for you so you can be confident in your options and the decisions you’re making.
You’re at an exciting time, but one that can be overwhelming. I know, I’ve been there too.
Reaching the age of 50 made me stop and think about ‘what’s next?’
I have worked all my life, had a challenging career in Human Resources and enjoy running my own management training business. I want to remain fit and active for many years to come but feel the need for something different. Time to create new work opportunities, take up new interests and really make the most of life.
I knew that to make changes to my working life, my lifestyle and my habits I needed to take time out to think and plan. So I took time out by walking 192 miles on the Coast to Coast path across the North of England!
My own journey made me realise I had the professional knowledge and skills to be able to help other people create a life they deserve. That was my inspiration for Time of your life. A practical life planning programme that doesn’t require two weeks tough walking!
Three practical steps to your amazing future…
Time of your life is ‘me time’ with a real purpose
The programme consists of three sessions, each of two hours and I work with you on a one to one basis in your own home or at one of our venues. There’s time to reflect between sessions with questions to explore that help make our time together as productive as possible.
Is about taking stock of where you are now and what you want to change. Are you thinking about changing career or finding a new role? Are there pressures, like caring responsibilities or health issues, that mean you cannot continue to work as you do?
Maybe you dream of running your own business or learning new skills? Or you may be thinking about retirement and what this would mean for you?
I will help you imagine what the future could hold and identify the key issues that you need to consider.
Next, it’s about getting to know yourself a bit better. Recognising your skills and how they can be used differently is not always easy. Working out what you really enjoy doing can also be a challenge if you have never given it any real thought.
With Time of your life you will receive a comprehensive personal report that provides insights into your talents and motivations and enables you to make the right choices.
What will you naturally be good at and what will you find difficult? What type of environments will be most rewarding for you? What type of people do you work best with and how can you build great relationships?
Now you have all you need to create a clear vision of how your future could be. You have the knowledge and tools to make decisions, confident that they are right for you.
Finally, it’s time to plan and make things happen. I will help you manage the journey, setting milestones and overcoming any obstacles. If it’s changes at work I will help you feel confident about asking for help or guide you in a new job search. If you want to retire it’s about changing habits and finding a new way of being and contributing.
It’s all about making those dreams become a reality. If you need more encouragement along the way then I’ll be there to help you.
