For when it’s time: Keys to a Successful Retirement by Fritz Gilbert

Keys to a Successful Retirement: Staying Happy, Active, and Productive in Your Retired Years by [Fritz Gilbert]Most of us will retire at some point or perhaps just scale back at work.  Feeling ready and prepared for this life stage is so important and the factors to consider are many.  Finances are what often come first to mind but there are other important considerations including how to spend one’s retirement time, how retirement will impact relationships and more.

This book provides a lot of information to, as the author notes, “staying happy, active, and productive in your retired years.”  In addition to covering everything from depression to using one’s time as one wishes to feel as good as possible, this book also has an excellent section of resources.  These include things like financial websites, lists of retirement blogs, podcasts,  books and much more.

I recommend this book as an excellent resource.  Many thanks to Callisto publishing for this title in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher:

Consider setting up a “bucket system,” whereby you allocate investments to one of three buckets based on how long it will be before you need to tap into the money.

Don’t retire without thinking about how it’s going to impact your relationships. You’ve never spent as much time together as you will in retirement. Plan for it.

Rather than thinking about seeking your passion, ask yourself, “What can I do with my time that’s important?” Committing your energy to something that matters to you is the true frosting on your retirement cake.
