One’s relationship with time changes pretty fundamentally once you retire. I wrote about how my concept of time was changing as soon as a week after early retiring, but it continues to evolve as I approach 125 days since I left work.
While I certainly feel like I am as busy – even BUSIER – than ever, I know that almost everything I do now is optional. I’m not required to attend meetings, be at a conference, or get MegaCorp administrivia filed by a deadline. This means that while I stay busy, life has slowed down IMMENSELY.
Enjoy your weekend!
