Evelyn, Age 70
People told me that I would know when it was time to retire, but I was skeptical. Then one day I received a call from a favorite client, for whom I had recently written a report. He said that he loved the report and wanted to have a meeting with all his colleagues so that I could present my findings and recommendations. He said he had cleared the time of Tuesday at 8AM with everyone, and looked forward to seeing me then. I responded without hesitation that I couldn’t make it at 8AM on Tuesday. He sounded very surprised, and asked whether I had another client meeting at that time. I said, calmly but firmly, “I have another commitment at that hour”. I suddenly realized that my yoga class was more important than this wonderful client, and immediately knew that this was my sign.
