Retirement & Life Planning
This site - retirementplanning.ie - makes the case for Retirement Planning and Retirement Coaching, and recommends using a qualified professional. Attendance at a pre Retirement Planning Seminar, accompanied by a spouse/partner, is also suggested. This balanced approach enhances the possibility that retirement will be a positive and rewarding experience.
Ideally people should give some thought to the challenges and changes brought about by retirement, 3 to 5 years prior to the retirement date. The key areas for consideration are Health, Relationships, Retirement Financial Planning, and Managing Time. It is a time of great personal change for the retiree, who must address areas of importance to himself/herself, as well as considering how retirement will affect those close to him/her.

Although as a 64 year old Baby Boomer and Active Retiree, I'm in the Third Age, I well remember the opportunities and challenges of mid-life, from my own work and life experience. Retirement is an issue that often comes to the fore in mid-life. This site has a wonderful quote from Carl Jung, which can be applied to the need for Retirement Planning before stepping into this major life transition:
"Wholly unprepared, we embark upon the second half of life ... we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still we take this step with the false assumption that our truths and ideals will serve as before. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life's morning - for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie."
If you are going through some midlife changes, maybe you feel "lost in the woods", midlife-men.com, can be your guide and companion. It will take the mystery out of the changes that happen at midlife, and show you how to handle them, and make the second half of your life even better than the first!

Was this what I had been looking forward to? How was I going to structure my days, my weeks, and my life in the years to come? What was needed to make my retirement positive and rewarding?
