A happy retirement is dependent on more than just having adequate financial resources. It means paying attention to all aspects of life, including leisure activities, creative pursuits, physical and mental well-being, and solid social support. With its friendly format, lively cartoons, and captivating quotations, Zelinskis guide offers inspirational advice on how to follow your dreams instead of someone elses how to enjoy life after work. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

"So when is the ideal time to retire? There is no ideal time to retire but you do not want to put it off longer than you have to."
Every now and then I seem to be going against the grain of what retirement should be. Then just as I was about say Ernie Zelinski does not know what she is talking about, I am included in the next paragraph. And she was right I should have retired earlier. My fault for listening to Suze Orman and building up the S.S. amount first at the expense of a few years.
I suggest this book is an interest to everyone whether contemplating or executing retirement. I have actually added a few more goals to my busy repertoire

His informal curriculum of setting goals, creating a "get-a-life" tree, and satisfying the three basic needs of retirees to find "purpose, community, and structure," is absolutely amazing. I call it "re-channeling your juices," focusing on your "new" mission - why you are excited to get up in the morning - avoiding too many passive (boring) activities, and seeking out ways to "make a difference." His text, illustrations, and quotations are hilarious!
Especially for many music educators, the transition to our "golden years" can be "bumpy!" We are too "Type-A" for our own good and personally identify (our self-worth) too much with our school music programs. It is difficult to walk away and not look back. When we take that first leap and leave full-time employment, sometimes we carry excess emotional baggage. Ernie Zelinski helps us to learn how to take it slow, plan and "intern" retirement, and get rid of everything else.
My favorite sections in his book are Chapter 2 "Retirement: A Time to Become Much More than You Have Ever Been," Chapter 3 "So Many Worlds, So Much to Do!", and Chapter 5 "Learning is for Life."
This is the book I purchase and give to every colleague who I know is planning to retire... the art teacher who lives on my street, the foreign language curriculum leader who is leaving the profession after serving 43 years at the school I also taught, etc.
My only complaint is that I can never find my own copy of the book... I keep lending it out to "needy" newly retirees who probably "forget" to return it. That's another good reason he has sold more than 275,000 copies of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free... we keep snatching them up and passing them on!
