Every time someone asks if I’m retired, I bristle.

1. Reorganizing Your Identity

It isn’t really a gap. It’s a shift.

2. Redefining Your Relationship to Time

The loosened bonds of time may give you psychological vertigo.

Assign new values to structured time.

3. Rediscovering Your True Needs

Give your inner voice time to assert itself.
