An easy, eight-step guide to self-discovery that lets you make the most of your later years.
We are living longer and healthier lives than ever before. Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964, are heading into retirement in droves (about 10,000 a day, in fact). Joan Tabb is on a mission to bring the best of them to this new stage of life—one she terms as “Revitalment.” Her new book, Building Blocks for the New Retirement: An Easy, Interactive 8-Step Guide for a Retirement with Meaning, Purpose and Fun (Great In 8 Coaching, 2018) reinvigorates the retirement paradigm for Baby Boomers age 55+ and shows us how to channel our energy into opportunities for meaning, purpose and fun. She answers the key question: How do you best use your gifts of time, energy and experience?
Tabb takes readers from confused and worried to confident and energized. In her interactive “seminar in a book,” she walks them step-by-step through eight areas of exploration, prompting readers to examine goals and aspirations around their abilities, relationships, community, legacy and more. Her process hones in on what will bring the most satisfaction through this next stage of life.
Along with posing specific questions to answer, Tabb offers stories of real people pursuing new roles and adventures in their retirement.
The author guides readers in:
• How to reengage with the essential “you” that you’d love to further develop
• How to move from an “outside-in” to an “inside-out” perspective
• How to build a full Action Plan with built-in accountability to ensure follow through
• How to cultivate a new spirit of exploration and enrichment
• What research reveals about happiness and longevity through social interaction and serving others
• How “anchor points” in your weekly schedule can provide needed structure
• Where retirees are finding meaningful roles that allow them to give back
Today, people can embrace their inner gifts and apply them in new areas of their choosing. Building Blocks for the New Retirement helps them chart a course to follow as they travel exciting and unexplored realms.
