Sustainability Solutions to Share with Linchpins # 42

I’m sharing some “million dollar” creative sustainability ideas and you can have them for free.  Be a Linchpin and develop something: ship, ship, ship!

Un-lock the Time Capsule:

1) There don’t seem to be enough (good) jobs to go around anymore.  Lots of people are handcuffed to their existing jobs because of the healthcare issue…they can’t quit because they need their medical coverage.  (This has been reviewed, discussed and debated…so I have nothing to add.)

2) Another issue is that many well paid, well compensated executive level staff members from Washington, DC all the way down to your home town are stuck in their jobs is that they can’t retire until they’re “old enough.”  Early retirement has a significant financial penalty for cracking the nest egg.

Where’s the Linchpin opportunity?

Yet again, the USA has built a future on “old” thinking and this is an example of punishing the performers.  If we un-lock the retirement plans and allow these winning horses to retire I see two big changes:

  1. They leave their jobs ~ someone else will need to fill their shoes.

  2. They begin spending that nest egg ~ this creates economic momentum.

I don’t really see a down side, even for the government, because when you start spending the 401(k) funds you begin paying taxes on the withdrawals too.

Simple.  Beautiful.  Elegant.  Perfect-Timing.  Sustainable!
