Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski has led his team to over 1,000 wins and five NCAA championships.
He’s 70 years young and has no plans for retirement:
“I don’t want to plan it. If you do, and the time comes and you’re not ready that’s bad. So is waiting for the time you planned when you should already be out. I’m involved in teaching, speaking and things I can go to. But I’m not prepared to leave right now” – Harvard Business Review March-April 2017
Aspire, don’t retire.
No matter what your age – and especially for those many years from retirement – Coach K’s plan to have things to go to is especially good advice for people who find themselves unemployed or between jobs.
