I met with some retired physicians today. It seems like retirement is when many physicians find the time and opportunity to pursue non-clinical opportunities. Many physicians enjoy teaching, writing, consulting, and doing many other things. Retirement is when they seem to find the time to do all the "fun" things in life. There's a new generation of physicians in today's world. The importance of work/life balance has never been stressed like ever before.
So what do you plan to do when you retire? Are you already preparing for that transition or will there be some major shifts in your life? It's hard to imagine the world of retirement, but I often do think about my current work/life balance.
