One Powerful Quote: 
19:34: “Watch for those aspects of your life that you are no longer participating in, maybe you just chose to retire. Well what did the engagement of work provide to you before? You had to be able to multitask. Are you going to just allow that capacity to erode or are you going to find another facet to get that done? You need to replace the stimuli that you are either intentionally or unintentionally losing in your life.”
