    Key Points

    Retirement can be a shock for people, but having a sense of purpose makes it much easier to handle.
    We need to take the stigma off demotions, because for some people it’s a better match to their stage of life. As people get older, they work less. It shouldn’t be a shame for them to earn less.
    Social media solutions:

    No screens in the first or last hour of day.
    Put your charger as far away from your bedroom as possible.
    Turn off notifications on your phone, or put your phone on airplane mode.

    Happiness should be a starting point, not a destination.
    The best time of day to check email is 9-10 am and 4-5pm.
    If you’re only doing the urgent tasks, your never doing the important ones.
