We read a lot about retirement and counsel clients to it and through it. So for us, it is hard to read anything new or refreshing about it (not withstanding Ron’s 2013 Confident Retirement Journey). However, every once in a while, a good article or book on the subject catches our attention. The latest is Sally Balch Hurme’s Get the Most Out of Retirement: Checklist for Happiness, Health, Purpose and Financial Security. It’s full of common sense practical tips, and it’s not all about money. The best thing about retirement, she says, is control over your own schedule. She outlines the Five P’s of Retirement: place, people, possibilities, purpose and passion. If you don’t have time for her book, she has a good summary at Next Avenue.org, a retirement-focused website run by Minnesota PBS. Enjoy!
