65 Things to Do When You Retire, 65 Notable Achievers on How to Make the Most of the Rest of Your Life edited by Mark Evan Chimsky is not a book suggesting a bucket list or a “to do” list of retirement activities.
Instead 65 Things to Do When You Retire is a collection of 65 essays about various aspects of preparing for retirement and living after you retire. You’ll find inspiration and food for thought. The essays are short, a few pages at most, so don’t expect detailed advice.
You’ll recognize the authors of some of the essays. Most of the authors were new to me. It was a treat to find an essay by Sydney Lagier, who I know as Retired Syd. She blogs at Retirement: A Full-Time Job.
The book is divided into 7 sections.
- Redefining Retirement
- Your Retirement Game Plan
- Do Good By Giving Back
- How Working in Retirement Can Work For You
- A New Freedom to Be Yourself
- Family Matters
- Go For It!
65 Things to Do When You Retire will inspire you and help guide you toward a happy, satisfying retirement doing whatever you choose to do.
