I worked super hard for a crazy amount of years, and back when it came time for retirement I went into it feeling great.
People regularly told me I would get bored as well as that I needed to find a few fun hobbies, as well as it turns out those people were right, and i knew if I didn’t keep me busy then the retirement would be miserable for the next twenty years.
I felt I deserved to have some fun. Even though it sounds silly, I began working a part time job for a few hours a week at a local store. I could care less about the extra currency, it was just to keep me up as well as active, as well as working with the HVAC component I was so nice at fixing, and you should have seen the guy’s face turn into a big smile when I asked if he happened to need someone with thirty five years of HVAC experience on his team! The child is half our age, although he already owns his own AC repair business, so he must be working his tail off or something. He was feeling so thankful to be able to welcome me aboard, and he started me off as a field supervisor for the HVAC techs. He knew my real worth was experience, wisdom, and of course being able to fix any heating or cooling issue the store might encounter. He lets me go with the rest of the team on more massive jobs just to offer some help, I never touch the HVAC component these days. I leave the task to the young bucks, and am satisfied to sip my coffee and just tell them the little ins as well as outs of HVAC repair they may not suppose due to lack of overall experience.
