Successful Baby Boomers
How to be a Successful Baby Boomer
Everyone wants more success in their lives, but the definition of success is much more subjective than anything else. Being a successful baby boomer depends on your own definition of success. Spending more time and energy towards whatever your current short term goals are will help you attain more of what you define as success, and will very likely make you happier.
You probably have already accomplished much of what you want to accomplish, and you may want to set your sights on some new goals such as entrepreneurship or traveling to some of the places you’ve always wanted to travel within the next 6 to 12 months.
Define your goals and start working on them
You should define what success means to you at this point in your life and what specific goals you can look toward achieving in the next year or so. For example, you might want to start your own business or start working on a film or an art project that you’ve always wanted to work on. You might want to publish a book or work on starting a non-profit organization.
Whatever it is that you want to accomplish in the near future, you should start working on it and come up with a basic plan at the very least of how you want to go about it. You very likely know what it takes to accomplish great things, and so it’s just a matter of applying the same principles to your new goals and sticking to it.
Remember that your experience and wisdom will be a major asset if you want to start a new project, business or other venture if you decide to do so.
If you’re happy where you’re at keep doing what you’re doing
As often the case with baby boomers, you might already be working in an area where you are very happy and successful, and if that’s the case you should simply continue doing what you are doing. You might want to expand your current business, work on marketing your book or other works of art, or spend more time accomplishing more of what you’ve already had recent success in.
If you’re already working on a successful project or job, you should come up with an action plan on how to expand on your current success within the next year. You know better than anyone what it takes to be successful in your current project or job, and it’s simply a matter of doing more of it or hiring others to help out with it.
Decide what will make you the happiest
As previously mentioned, everyone has their own definition of success. You may want to go on a spiritual retreat or travel to parts of the world that you’ve always wanted to see. You might want to volunteer more or contribute to a non-profit organization to leave a lasting legacy.
As a baby boomer, now is the perfect time to accomplish new goals and build upon the success that you’ve already established throughout your life. Decide which area of work will make you the happiest for the next year and spend most of your time on this project or projects.
