    TXU's chief executive ponders future

    Following the $45 billion buyout of TXU by private equity groups KKR and TPG, the Dallas Morning News reports, John Wilder will leave the company with $270 million. At just 49 years of age, Wilder now must figure out what he plans to do next. The DMN today details the contents of a letter Wilder sent out to TXU employees, which includes taking six months off to work on his "life list" of to-do items and possibly pursuing board positions with other energy companies.

    Some of those personal pursuits Wilder plans on doing include riding a camel in the desert, learning ballroom dance with his wife, reading the Bible cover to cover, and spending more time with his son. A copy of the entire letter is available here. Three things he said he won't do is run for political office, hunt or fish everyday, or write a book. .:.
