Retimement® is a content driven digital platform and consultancy established to inspire people and companies to design a lifestyle that cultivates well-being and inspires creativity and innovation in all aspects of life. This is achieved by integrating and allocating the appropriate amount of time for earning, living and having fun. This integrated pan-generational lifestyle is what I call retimement®.
Today’s global influencers, visionaries, thought leaders, mavericks and entrepreneurs know that there is a disruptive transformation taking place in both life and the workplace. This change is resulting from unalterable global factors such as living longer, economics, competition, change-as-constant and the ongoing technological impact.
These leaders recognize that humans are taking the lead in a new, reimagined quality of life; one where the new measure of success is well-being, and time is increasingly becoming our most valuable asset.
They know we need to embrace change and set the stage for a higher level of innovation and creativity. They know that the traditional model of retirement is no longer relevant.
It’s about time® for a foundational shift regarding how we design our lifestyle that integrates all aspects of our lives, giving us our greatest sense of well-being.
retimement is a dynamic, human-centric, integrated lifestyle.
- It debunks the myth of traditional retirement by recognizing the importance of “purpose” to well-being. It changes work from a “have-to” to a “want-to.”
- It aligns each person’s well-being with responsibilities and obligations in life and the workplace, and makes “having fun” a requirement instead of an elective.
- Designing a retimement lifestyle means having self-awareness, flexibility, purpose and a healthy approach to change. It is not done in a vacuum; choices from small to quite large will have to be made, sorting out priorities within the context of time and financial considerations.
It’s about time®
It’s about time is our tagline. It has a double meaning that captures “time” as the one asset we all have in equal measure –24 hours. It is also a call-to-action, urging individuals to start designing and living a good life now, and urging companies to invest in their greatest asset – people. Why wait?
earning, living and having fun
Earning: This refers to revenue producing part of life, be it a job, career or vocation.
Living: This encompasses the responsibilities and obligations we must fulfill, including childcare, eldercare, healthcare, cooking, eating, shopping, carpooling and housecleaning. It can include our plans for everything from finances to vacations, holiday celebrations to paying bills, feeding the dog to therapy, exercise and more. It also includes sleeping.
Having Fun: It is what it sounds like: the act of having no agenda or planned activities; what gives you pleasure for the sake of pleasure.
