What does it mean to “retire”?

Maybe you want to keep working the same job you’ve done for the last several years. But if you don’t, what do you want to do for the rest of your life? Many, many baby boomers will live until 100 and even if they are financially prepared, most are not in any way emotionally prepared.  Look what these folks are doing as they reach the 100 year mark!

If someone told you you would have 20, 30 or 40 more years to live, how would you spend that time?  Very few of us will want to play that much golf.  In the past, we defined our work by our successes.  Maybe we could find a different measuring stick for the years 60 – 100.  Maybe something like significance or contribution. Back in the 60s and 70s, we were the peace and love generation.  Since then we got sidetracked by jobs, kids families, grandkids, etc.  How could we as a generation make an impact on the planet and finally fulfill the promise of our youth?

Think about it Baby Boomers!
