About My Retirement Diary
We cannot understand what we don’t measure. (paraphrasing Lord Kelvin, 1883)
I believe I can design a “better” retirement if I periodically “measure” my retirement. Or at least that is my working hypothesis.
I intend to use this diary as a tool to publicly investigate that hypothesis.
Toward that end, I wrote two articles about my retirement on this blog.
- My Journey into Retirement: Before, T=-1 month
- Retirement Update @ 3 months This was based on entries in my “retirement” diary.
I have posted My Retirement Diary here —> My Retirement Diary
About the format of My Retirement Diary:
The first entry in my diary was created when I woke on the first day of my retirement, 12/22/2023. That entry will be at the bottom of the page. The most recent entry will always be at the top of this page. While I add entries to my diary at least several times a week, the public version of My Retirement Diary will be updated episodically.
Regarding grammatical errors:
It is my intent to record the day’s events and/or my thoughts as expeditiously as possible; grammar is not a significant priority. So be grammatically forgiving.
Regarding privacy issues:
I have endeavored to protect the privacy of those mentioned in this diary by omitting surnames. If you feel that there is a privacy breach, please let me know and I will promptly make amends.
