Product description


This is the most useful and refreshing book on retirement that I've read so far. Patrice Jenkins understands the hesitation of stepping into retirement: the dread of endless, empty time. In lucid language with real life stories and specific suggestions, Jenkins shows us that we should never stop working -- but retirement allows us to find and do the work we love most -- perhaps the most important work of our lives. Cheers to the author. Well done. --Barbara Sher, Author of I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was

Product Description

Patrice Jenkins wrote this book to rescue people who are trapped in their careers. These individuals have prepared financially for retirement but they stay in jobs/careers because they don't know what they would do if they weren't working. After conducting interviews and coaching individuals through the retirement transition process, she learned their resistance boils down to one looming question, What will I do all day?

This question isn't about keeping busy. There are always enough things to do, but who wants to wake up to a to-do list for the next 20-30 years? At the core of "What will I do all day?" is a deeper emotional question. What will I do all day that will be meaningful, provide direction for my life, keep me engaged in society, and still be fun and rewarding? That's a much harder question to answer than how will I keep busy?

To get over retirement and on with living, you need to understand the deeper issues of retirement. The issues a simple financial strategy or get-away vacation won't solve. What is rarely discussed is how you feel about retirement. In her book, Jenkins helps you identify these core feelings and address your unspoken fears if retirement feels like a long road to the end. You'll get to know what really matters to you, the things you want to build into your retirement plan. You'll learn from other people's experience with retirement what you need to do now to start preparing.

There is life after work, in fact this life probably includes work, but you'll need to get over retirement to start living and enjoying this next stage of life. This book will help you do that!
