Ned Grossman

My pre-retirement career:

Employee Benefits Consultant

Three ways I spend my time in retirement:

#1: Enjoying every day; the peace, calm and beauty of living as a human being rather than a human doing.

#2: Finishing my second book, “How to Succeed in the 21st Century: Focus on the Things over which You have Input, Impact and Control.” (It should be “out” very shortly.)

#3: Making the time to perform random acts of kindness. It’s actually quite a lot of fun!

What I love most about retirement:

See the answer to above question!

My biggest challenge with retirement:

Making it last.

What I did to prepare for retirement:

Honestly, nothing special. Welcomed it when it arrived and have embraced it ever since.

Something I’ve recently done for the first time:

Took a course in adult education, if you consider “Baseball: A Business or a Sport” adult “education.’

Most recent book/article I’ve read:

Thomas Friedman’s “Thank You for Being Late.”

My future:

To be determined.

My advice for future retirees:

Embrace it passionately; enjoy it enthusiastically; hope it lasts indefinitely!
