Step Two of Half-Retirement©

Our Half-Retirement© program consists of 6 results-oriented steps. The second step is to Adopt a Half-Retirement© Mindset.   In order to get the most from Half-Retirement© some old mindsets NEED to go.  You MUST make room for the new Half-Retirement© mindsets.  By adopting the right mindset, the Half-Retirement© process can move faster and have a much greater likelihood of success.

Mindsets like these need to go:

  • This business is your baby.
  • No one does it as well or as fast as you.
  • Structure built with the owner at the center.
  • The only person with permission to fail is you.
  • Perfectionism.
  • Corporate culture of urgency.
  • Trust as a shortcut for systems.

These mindsets speed up Half-Retirement©:

  • Pragmatism.
  • Egoless (no need to be needed).
  • Teacher versus doer.
  • Technology lover, not necessarily a techie.
  • Insistence upon scale and repeatability.
  • Productiveness = success, not just being busy.
  • Systems and controls.

To create the correct mindset, you need to follow these 5 steps:

  1. Assess your current Half-Retirement©
  2. Rank your current state of mind.
  3. What mindset shifts are needed for you to achieve your Half-Retirement© goal?
  4. Pick one that you feel you can adjust in the near future and commit to changing it.
  5. What will you do to accomplish this?

Skipping this step WILL be detrimental to your Half-Retirement© success.  A Half-Retirement® Mindset releases the progress emergency brake.  This mindset helps you grow your business and  your team.
