Can Type-A Types Really Retire?

By November 9, 2012

Follow me on:

That's the question posed in a really interesting article on Forbes.com this week, When Type A Personalities Retire: It Isn't Pretty. When you think about it, most Type A personalities would probably prefer to not retire at all. Being A-inclined, I can relate--being lazy is hard work. You crave the prestige of your position, and probably the stress as well.

But if you must retire, the article suggests there are some things you should do: build a strong social network, find things or activities that maintain your personal aura of cool and prestige, take on work volunteer work that makes you feel needed, and engage in activities that stress you out just a little bit.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to a life without structure, deadlines and distraction? Or do you dread the idea of the easy life?

Outstanding work!
