Many people consider retirement the last stop before the end of the road. As such, people view retirees as tired people who have exhausted their strength. But the thing is, no matter what stage people are in life, there will always be room for growth. And contrary to what many people believe, retirement affords retirees the opportunity and the time to learn things they always wanted to learn but never did, for lack of time or opportunity.
There will be some limitations though, especially in the physical aspect, since the human body ages – so enrolling in physically-demanding activities such as CrossFit or MMA might not be the best idea. However, taking up art classes or anything that has to do with travel and the environment would seem beneficial.
Probably, a great first step for a retiree would be to list down the things he wants to learn. Maybe he wants to write a novel or a screenplay but doesn’t know the craft that well. Maybe he wants to enter a short-film contest, but needs to know how to go about making a short film. Maybe he wants to put a small business but has little know-how in the accounting aspects of it.
The possibilities are nearly endless.
