Planning is not the strongest indicator of a successful retirement. The research conducted by Dr. Bill Roiter for Beyond Work: How Accomplished People Retire Successfully found that the strongest indicator is confidence in your ability to retire successfully. Planning is, of course, an important contributing factor of confidence, as is knowledge. The more you know, the more confident you can feel.
Beyond Work looks at what happens as accomplished people move beyond work and enter their years as a new adult. People have made major transitions before; entering the workforce, getting married, raising a family or changing careers are some of the transitions we have navigated. The transition from a work/career-focused life to the meaning-focused life after retirement relies on the same skills we have used during our other life transitions.
Beyond Work is filled with retirement stories from people who are considering retirement and those who have retired. Interviews with experts in the fields of finance, medicine, social living and personality provide insights that will increase your knowledge and confidence as you move beyond work.
A no-cost, on-line Retirement Confidence Index is available at the beyondwork.net website to help you understand your confidence in each of retirement s four major domains.
