Retirement is the Time for Convergence

Recently I had the honor of sitting down with Brad Keller. Brad is the Senior Pastor of The Harbor in Spicer, MN. He is also a professional Life Coach from Transformation Leadership Coaching International. Brad’s passion is to raise up leaders and empower them by helping them discover their unique gifts, talents, skills and experiences. In our chat, Brad describes how retirees’ lives should be converging on an even greater purpose and assignment.

Here’s a little snippet of our conversation:

“The last and final season of life is the season of significance. It’s really called the season of convergence. You should be converging things in your life by the time you’re 50 or 60 years old. For example, your talents, your skillset, your life’s experiences – those should all be converging – where you put on a glove that’s perfectly tailormade for your hand and you’re operating on all eight cylinders. It’s when you are stepping into your greatest assignment. You know what you’re called to be – because it’s one thing to be – and then it’s another thing to do – you’re not always doing, doing, doing for the sake of doing, but you understand exactly who you are.”

~Pastor Brad Keller

Considering Brad’s words, here are some questions to consider:

  • As you reflect, what skills, talents and experiences are converging?
  • What is your assignment in retirement?
  • How can you now use your life for a greater purpose?
  • Who are you and how has God created you for such a time as this?
