Description

They say that 50 is the new 40. If you're over 50, chances are you feel more vital, energetic, and passionate than ever. While you may be ready to retire, you may not be ready to stop working entirely. These days, life after work no longer conjures up images of couples wandering the malls, playing golf, and taking endless Caribbean cruises.

As baby boomers reach their 50s and 60s, they are redefining what it means to retire. What they want is joy, vitality, and meaning in their lives. The truth is that this is not your parents' version of retirement, and just because you may have stopped working doesn't mean you have to stop living life to the fullest. You may want to choose a completely different career path or pursue a whole new interest.

Author David Borchard has been helping adults rejuvenate their careers and lives for 30 years. In The Joy of Retirement, he shows you how to reinvent yourself and achieve the kind of fulfillment and meaning you have always dreamed of in your life. Now, you can start crafting your future and discovering your passions with advice on topics such as:

  • Finding new interests that make the most of your unique talents
  • Planning your lifestyle at 50+
  • Assessing what transitions you are ready and willing to make
  • Defining priorities and goals
  • Establishing your criteria for success
  • Mastering the seven steps to maintaining vitality

Revealing and hopeful, this is the audio book that shows you that life after work can be fulfilling, fun, and exhilarating.

    Perhaps aging is really very simple. Because most of the guidance this book offers is just common sense solutions to the problems of growing old. And since one of the by-products of aging is (one can't help hoping) common sense, then it goes without saying, why bother to read this book? Sorry, but the authors' rather simplistic style and approach put me off. hmmm....lots of words that don't say much. Reminds me of the education textbooks of my youth. Not a good thing! Seriously, look before you buy. You may find more useful content than I did. From my perspective, this book had little to offer.
