Coach Win's Top 10 Rules for a Happy Retirement
A simple Internet search will produce many dozens of websites with “Rules for a Happy Life”. I’ve conducted many such searches and have used the search results to generate my own list of rules that I consider to have particular applicability to a meaningful and happier retirement (elderhood for those of you who know how I feel about the word retirement).
While I could have easily come up with a long list such rules, I have limited my list to 10 rules. Here then, is my list of “Top 10 Rules for a Happy Retirement”, although these rules apply to living a happy, purposeful life as well. Enjoy and I hope you make a sincere effort to live/retire by these rules!
