"I recently retired and in the process of beginning the next phase of my life"

I recently retired and in the process of beginning the next phase of my life. This is the reason I have enrolled in this program. I retired with a plan. I created a small business to teach Qigong to people in my age group as well as volunteer my services to two of my favorite charities. However, without structure, I realize that I often procrastinate. I start my day with one intention and end up doing something else. Before retiring I did all three and now that I've actually retired, I fear that time will become my biggest challenge because I'm so used to having deadlines that I will not be able to use my time wisely. My motivation to teach seems to have faded and I want it back! I think its because of the COVID crisis because I had to cancel all my classes including my volunteer services. 
I do a Zoom class for one facility but that's it. I had no plans of gardening but now I discovered gardening and love it. But that was not my plan! I had planned to earn extra money from my part-time business to travel and not be on a budget. BUT, I've lost my drive so to speak.. and I want my plan it back.
