The brief book is one of the first to demonstrate how psychology can be used to facilitate your own planning process. Dr. Hellkamp maintains planning for different life goals, including planning for a successful retirement, can be developed through a method of using self-examination (reflection) of your life experiences, especially early life experiences. The author walks you through a simple analysis of his own life experiences for the purpose of demonstrating how the process can work. Self-discovery for identifying your own meanings of success becomes a method for clarifying and establishing your various life and retirement goals. --Other rationale for reading the book: (1) elders make up a larger part of society, living today an average 15 years following full retirement; and (2) shockingly, it is estimated as little as ten percent of elders have done much retirement planning. Why so little planning? In part, people need to discover more inspiring, upbeat, and enjoyable ways to go about planning to prevent a turnoff. The goal is to stimulate you to find inspiration in your own planning.
