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. Many of them are still choosing to work or create a whole new life entirely. What they crave is vitality, joy, and meaning in their lives. Author David Borchard has been helping adults rejuvenate their careers and lives for 30 years. In The Joy of Retirement, he shows readers how to reinvent themselves and achieve the kind of fulfillment and meaning in their lives they have always dreamed of. Now, readers can start crafting their future and discovering their passions with advice on topics such as: finding new interests that make the most of their unique talents; planning their lifestyle at 50+; assessing what transitions they are ready and willing to make; defining priorities and goals; establishing their criteria for success; and, mastering the seven steps to maintaining vitality. Revealing and hopeful, this book will reshape how people look at the next phase of their lives.
