What is an “Idle Warrior?”

An idle warrior is a retired professional or subject matter expert who has not yet found his or her niche. College professors, lawyers, doctors, small business owners, healthcare workers, even journeyman electricians. They have devoted lifetimes of care and practice to their skills to such an extent they become expert warriors in their field. But a retirement or job loss prompted a change. For some that’s a dream come true. But for many more, they feel like they are not quite done. The idle warrior is that person not yet done with life. Golf, gardening, and grandchildren may welcome diversions, but the idle warrior feels he or she still has more to give. The question is, how do you move from being an idle warrior to an ideal one?
