Retirement, the Best Job Around.

Screenshot_2016-03-06-12-00-38_crop_714x418I keep seeing articles in the press and magazines about the problems that face men when they retire. It’s suggested we loose money, the structure of our lives, status, and our sense of efficacy. Divorce rates among the retired have increase and dissatisfaction with having to live a non-working life increases rapidly.

Somehow all these problems have passed me by, retirement has meant my wife and I travelling the world, taking over the kitchen, getting more involved in the community and using the skills and knowledge I gained at work to benefit our village school.

Obviously money is a big issue but as we all know retirement is an inevitable event for most of us we need ensure we have a financial plan which will provide security. Fail to plan and you plan to fail. The other important issue is your attitude to work. Too many live for their work instead of working to live. There are so many opportunities for the more mature man today, no one any reason to resent or fear retirement.
