For most of us, our work defines us. Work provides an income, arranges our schedules, provides us with an identity, and much--if not most--of our social connections. The transition from work to retirement is a significant change. The prevailing advice we receive, from the first professional job onwards, is to make a financial plan for retirement. However, few have been encouraged to develop a plan for the non-financial realities of retirement. We seem to believe that if we have the financial means to retire, the rest will take care of itself. Financial security alone will not guarantee a successful or fulfilling retirement.
