At midlife, many people drift into a disengagement from their career pursuits, experiencing boredom and low grade depression, according to Barbara Moses, psychologist and “career guru” for the Globe and Mail.
If you feel this way, do a self-assessment to what you care about, and what you like to do. This process will help reveal what to do next in your life to achieve a positive outlook.
Retirement involves a psychological change; becoming more internally driven. It doesn’t happen overnight.
Barbara Moses’ What Next? book includes self-assessment tools. It is available from McNally Robinson Booksellers.
