Retirement: Life’s Greatest Adventure is a new book by Bill Leavitt about how a retiree or future retiree can create a plan to have a happy, fulfilling retirement. It will guide readers through the decision-making and planning involved with creating the ideal retirement. It answers many of the questions that will help readers to decide what they want to do with their retirement. Often retirees can discover options that they didn’t even realize they have. Also, they will discover that there are pitfalls to retirement that they never imagined existed.
Most of all, this book is intended to expose readers to a whole world of opportunities that will make retirement more fun, exciting, satisfying and fulfilling. The book tries to show readers ways to be more active, enthusiastic, involved, fit, healthy, happy and fulfilled. Over 100 exciting examples of activities that suit retirees are described and discussed.
The book contains guidance for how to prepare for retirement for those who are thinking about retirement; suggestions for those who have retired but think they haven’t discovered all the joys of retirement; emotional and psychological aspects of retirement; how to deal with all the invitations for volunteer jobs; advice on moving to a better climate; making friends; going back to work; health aspects of retirement; what to do with retirement benefits; how retirement effects your marriage; retirement tips; handicap considerations; how to figure out what to do with your time; goal-setting; and a rating system for activities.
