How does one get invited to the Quora Partner Program? What criteria do they use, or is it completely random?
I live in Germany. I got an invite to the Quora partner program the day I landed in USA for a business trip. So from what I understand, irrespective of the number of views on your answers, there is some additional eligibility criteria for you to even get an email invite.If you read the terms of service, point 1 states:Eligibility. You must be located in the United States to participate in this Program. If you are a Quora employee, you are eligible to participate and earn up to a maximum of $200 USD a month. You also agree to be bound by the Platform Terms (https://www.quora.com/about/tos) as a condition of participation.Again, if you check the FAQ section:How can other people I know .participate?The program is invite-only at this time, but we intend to open it up to more people as time goes on.So my guess is that Quora is currently targeting people based out of USA, who are active on Quora, may or may not be answering questions frequently ( I have not answered questions frequently in the past year or so) and have a certain number of consistent answer views.Edit 1: Thanks to @Anita Scotch, I got to know that the Quora partner program is now available for other countries too. Copying Anuta’s comment here:If you reside in one of the Countries, The Quora Partner Program is active in, you are eligible to participate in the program.” ( I read more will be added, at some point, but here are the countries, currently eligible at this writing,) U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy and Australia.11/14/2018Edit 2 : Here is the latest list of countries with 3 new additions eligible for the Quora Partner program:U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Australia, Indonesia, India and Brazil.Thanks to Monoswita Rez for informing me about this update.

How did you learn to fill the time during your retirement?
Those who seem to have the most trouble are those who were rather unidimensional in their lives with few outside interests. Their job was the focal point of their existence and what gave their life meaning. They had few or no hobbies, were not involved in outside social activities and did not develop diversions from work that had meaning for them. Many such retirees seem to die prematurely. So the biggest detriment to retirement that I have seen is the lack of interests and alternatives to expand into a meaningful set of activities after retirement. This does not mean that you cannot develop these interests and alternatives after retirement but you must make a conscious effort to do so and it takes time. If you get a head start on that well before retirement it makes the transition much easier. I tried to do a dispassionate assessment of my own skills and how they might transfer into useful activities after retirement. For example, I had worked with the state legislature a lot during my career so I knew that environment and how it worked. I got involved with a group worried about the well-being of state retirees and used my expertise to help them achieve what they wanted in the legislature and continue to monitor this. This is an example of taking skills and abilities you developed over the years during your career and translating them into useful assistance on a volunteer basis to those who do not possess those skills. Think about it and I am sure you can begin to see ways you can do interesting tasks using your skills that make others’ lives better.
