REALITIES OF RETIREMENT

1) You are no longer popular in your office.
2) Avoid going to your former office without invitation. Where it's absolutely necessary inform an officer of your visit so that you can be received.
3) Know that not everyone liked you while at work & now have an opportunity to snob you.
4) Keep in touch with your coursemates as you grow in retirement because some Pharaohs in Egypt may not know your Joseph.
5) Attend celebration of coursemates. Its always a reunion with lots of fun.
6) Only a few of the people you assisted (including family members) will come around to see you often.To others you have nothing to offer.
7)Plan your days & follow your plan. Sometimes when you look at your uniform with all the medals, you have a feeling of emptiness. Get yourself occupied.
cool Traveling is great, visit places of interest and enjoy your travels.
9) Eat right, enjoy your meals but down excessive sugar, salt, fats and oils.
10) Do your medical check-up even when you feel healthy.
Enjoy your retirement.

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

Build your own house where you will live in your old age.
Build businesses that will feed you in your old age.

Create conveniences that will engage you in your old age.

Build friendship and goodwill that will serve you in your old age.

Right now, start to be relevant in your mosque or Church and community so you could be reckoned with in your old age.

* Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.
* May you not become a liability on your children in your old age.
* May your children not wish you an early death when they can't manage you again in your old age.

An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence!

Be warned now...!
There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older, your family, people in your place of worship and childhood friends, who include your Old School mates.

Friends, take it or live it, at 60 and above, loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their way to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies, just as we did now. At that time it's these people in these 3- categories that take away loneliness and keep your company.

At 50 years and above, you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.

Respect friendship and value relationship.

no more free money to spend lavishly that's why majority of them fall sick and become useless after leaving office that's when they know it's expensive to buy one crate of coke

I want to travel now I'm young not during retirement. Do you know how it looks dinning out in some of the finest French restaurants but with dentures on? How about hiking mt everest in old age, will I make it to the summit without having a heart attack? How about skydiving, can I do that in old age? Enjoy your youth while saving for retirement if God spares your life to see retirement age.

Re: Realities Of Retirement. by paulolee(m): 10:38pm On May 08
real facts n raw undiluted truths about life..
baba olu bin work for NPA headquarter in marina for so many years. he was d head of driver n was loved by many because he was so generous and jokes alot when he is around....
he was ever willing to help financially even if it means taking a loan for u as long as he likes u n he was tagged "better man" by almost everyone for streets...
he retired last 3yrs n was heavily compensated n now living in pension bt he keeps saying the biggest mistake he made was to please others n displease himself bcoz he do feel abandoned by the many friends he taught he had, not knowing they all came around simply because all was fine..

Before any man retires be sure to make plans that will put food on your table for the remaining days you have left on earth...

On point. But in Nigeria it is nature that often forcefully retires many, because they won't get to retirement age normally. Like one old man close to 90 but still claiming 70's. There is also a case of twins born same day but one is mid 30's and the other is early 20's. grin grin grin grin
