Making Up For Lost Time
July 5, 2022 - 1 MINUTE READ
It has been an eventful 2+ years in the world, with many of us just now making up for lost time due to Covid-19. We all experienced what it felt like to hunker down, order our meals at home, and avoid large indoor crowds. People are now traveling at record numbers, with airlines struggling to support the surge in summer travel and many flights being canceled.
Despite the headlines, retirees are in agreement that one thing they can’t get back is time. Money can’t buy back lost time or memories with family. According to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, she suggests thinking through what is most important to you and go do it1. Whether it be taking that road trip to go see friends or buying your dream car, the pandemic has taught us that life is fragile. Planning ahead is key for your next adventure, with many experts suggesting at least a year in advance for overseas travel. In addition to traditional hotels, look at online rental places such as Airbnb and Vrbo.
As we move in July 2022, think about something you’ve been wanting to do and go do it. Someone once told me, life isn’t a dress rehearsal, time is extremely limited. Do what makes you happy and fulfills you.
