The Case for Taking a ‘Gap’ Year in Midlife
A client shared this article from the Wall Street Journal with me today. I love the article and think it has some great ideas in it. The “Gap Year” concept is worth thinking about!
Baby boomers are calling for a timeout.
After decades of raising children and climbing the corporate ladder, they’re weary of the same old routine. But they’re so caught up in high-pressure jobs that they don’t have the time and energy to figure out what to do next.
Enter the career break.
Inspired by high-school and college students who take “gap” or “bridge” years, more baby boomers are taking an extended leave from the working world. Their goal: to relax, re-energize and reflect upon what they want to do next—which often means heading down an entirely new and more fulfilling career path.
