Don't Retire, Refire Podcast

Dec 21, 2018

In this episode Ingrid discusses her readings and experience around “Identity” - who we think we are.  She explains that in the USA, one of the first questions asked when meeting someone new is: What do you do?  By the way, I don't think that this is a phenomenon unique to Americans, it’s world wide! The answer to this innocent question typically defines who we think others are, and who we think we are. She then goes on to talk about the shortcomings of this mindset and how, when we transition away from what we have done for many years, this can cause a great deal of disorientation, anxiety and depression. She then reveals some simple tips to move past our self imposed limitations, so that we can more effectively “act” or “fumble” our way forward, rather than trying to think our way forward.  This is an important episode and worth re-listening to.
