10 Surprisingly Attainable Traits of a Very Happy Retirement | Inc.com

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “The Great Resignation,” with millions of people out of work, changing jobs, in transition, and just trying to figure out what comes next.

The Prudential poll found that 1 in 5 workers changed their line of work entirely over the past year — the top reasons for making these career changes?

  • Better work-life balance (27%)
  • Better compensation (26%)
  • Wanting to try something new (26%)


The Pandemic has been massively disruptive, scary and really life-altering. And it seems to have many of us re-evaluating priorities, our own value, and the time we have in this life to do the things that are important to each of us.

I moved onto a boat in January 2020 to do America’s Great Loop. If you’re not familiar with it, you can see a map here https://bit.ly/thegreatloop —  but it’s basically the Eastern third of the US by waterway. I love what I do for work – but I wanted more adventure…and I didn’t want to wait for retirement to live those dreams.

But it didn’t start by one day just randomly getting on a boat and setting out!

My husband and I started taking sailing classes.

Then we took navigation classes

Then we joined a boating club….where we first heard about The Great Loop.

There were a lot of other steps before we were on the water full time. It’s really a matter of doing what you can from where you are…..and then taking the next step.

What could you do today to get yourself one step closer to your own goals?
