The Rich Plan to Live to 100 - What Will You Do?

A recent Bloomberg article highlighted the expectations of wealthy folks to live life to 100. And not just make it to 100 but get there healthy. 

The article mentions the activities that wealthy people are regularly doing - yoga, pilates, meditation and things like that. This all sounds wonderful and all but what I wonder is, what will you do with all of that extra time? If we actually believe we will have a much longer time on this earth, I want to ask 3 questions:

  1. How does living that much longer affect how you view your career?
  2. how does it affect how you view your role in your family?
  3. How does this affect how you view your ability to impact your community?

With 20 more years of living time than we might normally expect, we could have much more of an impact in our world both in our family, and in our surrounding community.

If you work with me, I will want to know what is important to you, and what your goals are, so that your money is best positioned to help make sure that if you want to make a longer impact, you will be able to and that your money planning will be aligned with your goals and most important values.

Do you think you will live to 100+? And have you thought how this might change your potential impact on your world? 

Do Annoying Work at Night and Take Some Time Off During the Day

It makes no sense. It's sunny outside, the weather is lovely. Birds are chirping and a light breeze is blowing.  However, you're INSIDE at your desk doing paperwork. What a pity! Wouldn't it feel better to be outside going for a walk?

Most people would answer yes. But, why don't we do that? Is it because we have work to do and no one wants to shirk at work? Now, I agree, we can't skip work. And no doubt, there are certain, high payoff activities that are best done during the day. Meeting with the people you serve (your customers), making phone calls, developing your product with your freshest mind, and working on developing your team are among the most critical tasks you need to be doing in your work. However, doing paperwork, sending emails and organizing your desktop - which need to be done - are not tasks that always need to be done during the best hours of the day.

Therefore, If you'd like to improve your health, improve your spirits and add more balance to your life, try completing those mundane tasks - such as emails and organizing - in the evening. And use that time you would have been doing those tasks during the day to go out for a walk in the sun.

This one little switch, which involves reprogramming the mentality that you must work 8 hours a day during daylight hours, could go a long way to helping you balance your life. It's a true 80/20 activity - because by making a small calendar switch (maybe affecting 20% of your typical work time), you can get such a large psychological benefit.
