9 Course conclusion

You’ve now completed this Midlife MOT.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the course and learned how to get the most out of your midlife and prepare for the enjoyable years ahead.

Whether you have focused on the wealth, work or wellbeing sessions (or all three), one thing is hopefully clear – there is no time like the present to take action to shape your finances, plan your working life and improve your physical and mental life.

Perhaps as a last activity you should list and then initiate the first action points for you in respect of your finances, your job and your wellbeing.

Many of us are guilty of inertia when it comes to taking important decisions. But it’s much better to make changes sooner rather than later. Do take any steps needed now so that you’re better prepared as you get older:

  • Make sure your finances are in good shape and you’re planning for future needs.
  • Decide how you want the rest of your working life to span out.
  • Make sure you’re doing all you can to stay healthy.

And with all of that secured … have fun and enjoy yourself!
