Abstract

The whole notion of retirement as we know it is undergoing a fundamental change because of a near‐perfect storm. For one thing, most of us are knowledge workers now, and work is less taxing on us physically. There was a time when a 55‐year‐old worker was broken down and tired and, perhaps rightfully so, ready to stop working. In fact, only a hundred or so years ago the average life span of a man in this country was about 55 years, with women living slightly longer.Today, medical science has enabled people to live much longer. As a result, a 55‐year‐old man or woman probably has another 30 years of life, plenty of energy and mental acuity, and all of their wisdom and relationships.The bottom line? This individual will probably want to do something significant with those bonus years, and for many who have achieved great success and climbed one mountain after another throughout their lives, working on their golf game or traveling endlessly is not going to suffice. They are going to need more, and they are going to have to figure out what that more is for them.Perhaps I am describing you or one of your team. Either
