Making the Transition: Psychological Aspects of Retirement
“Almost anything is easier to get into than out of.”

- Agnes Allen, American epigrammatist

Transitions
Transitions consist of:
An Ending A Neutral Zone A New Beginning
Reference: Managing Transitions, William Bridges, Addison-Wesley Publishing, 1991. Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes, 2nd Edition, William Bridges, Da Capo Press, 2004.

Endings

“All changes, even the most longed-for, have their melancholy, for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another. ” - Anatole France, French writer

Endings
 Identify and acknowledge the losses  Expect and accept signs of grieving
 Anger, anxiety, sadness, disorientation, depression

 Define what is over, and what isn’t  Mark the ending  Treat the past with respect

The Neutral Zone

“It’s not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear… It’s like being between trapezes. It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer. There’s nothing to hold on to.” - Marilyn Ferguson, American futurist

The Neutral Zone
“A nowhere between two somewheres”

A necessary phase of reorientation and redefinition Create temporary systems, structures Strengthen networks Use the neutral zone creatively
 Take stock  Question the “usual”  Look for new solutions and opportunities

Establish a New Identity
“What do you do?” “Tell me about yourself!” What is the first thing that comes to your mind?

A New Beginning

“Every exit is an entry somewhere else.” - Tom Stoppard, American dramatist

A New Beginning
Expect some ambivalence
 A new beginning confirms the ending  A new beginning is always a gamble

Postpone “extra” changes Foresee as much as you can
 Do “worst-case” scenarios

Unload old baggage Embrace your new life!

A New Beginning

“ The only joy in the world is to begin. ” - Cesare Pavase, Italian writer
