What to Do to Retire Successfully
Navigating Psychological, Financial and Lifestyle Hurdles
by Dr. Martin B. Goldstein
Seventy-seven million baby boomers are slated to retire over the next twenty years: this boils down to about 10,000 daily. Many are inadequately prepared, emotionally and financially. In What to Do to Retire Successfully, Dr. Goldstein lays out a step-by-step approach to achieve a successful and content retirement.
Goldstein taps into his financial and psychiatry background as he explores the potential pitfalls of life after career’s end, while providing helpful, proven solutions for a feasible and effective adjustment into retirement. He also analyzes how diverse personality types cope with retirement and suggests necessary modifications, as well as probing the unique problems of those forced into early retirement.
He offers specific formulas for continuance of a comparable standard of living, steps for saving and investing, as well as tips for handling retirement resources. The lifestyle sections explore creating a dynamic plan for retirement living, the importance of setting up routines, keeping your mind engaged, daily exercise and making the necessary preparations needed to facilitate a successful transition into retirement living.
What to Do to Retire Successfully is an enlightening blend of actual retirement scenarios and practical advice from a fellow retiree, with a wonderfully optimistic philosophy towards living a fulfilling retired life.
