A very Good starting point
on May 17, 2012
Being on the verge of retirement I find myself in this discussion "what are you going to do when you retire" and that question seems to be the wall so many people I know can't seem to get over. Yes for us baby boomers we all have had the financial planning component hammered into us by books, commercials, spouses etc but what do we actually do with ourselves still seems to be a mystery to so many of us. The old answers of travel, golf, playing cards doesn't cut it anymore, no one travels all the time, me I don't play golf and the idea of playing cards puts me to sleep. So here is where this book comes in, reevaluating what retirement really means, changing the rules of the games from withdrawal from work and some kind of leisure life from hell to a new chapter of exploration of who we are and reawakening of old passions to the acquisition of new ones. This book is the beginning of exploring exactly who we are at this age and stage of our lives and gives us ideas to move forward.
I would recommend reading this book even if you think you have a life plan, it can only help make it better. I know my review is light on the substance of the book, go read it the investment is worth it, my point is money is important to retirement but if you don't know what to do with yourself then what's the point. This book helps you discover how to actually enjoy this time of your life.
