This book is not your normal politically correct, self-help book on retirement. It is not a result of attending seminars, workshops and conferences, nor countless readings on the subject. You know about those books- you've read them and they are boring, mundane, cliché, and definitely not fun.
William Peace has experienced a whole new, exciting and surreal retirement over the last nine years. Is there life after work, he asks? You bet and it's wonderful. Follow the invigorating and inspiring DNA of Retirement Life in this collection and you, too, can thrive instead of just survive.
Here are some of Peace's "dreamy, unreal, fantastic" suggestions:
• Only do one big activity per day.
• Never ever live in a boring town again.
• Never eat what you don't want to eat.
• Never again take morning flights.
• Guys, grow your hair long, get the look back that you had in the '70s.
• Don't pick up any new hobbies.
• If alone and feeling uncomfortable, then try noise.
• For a great day out with the grandkids, visit the recycle can-eater at the grocery store.
• Never stop appreciating beautiful, passionate, and emotional people.
• Strive for excellence vs. perfection.
• Do your net worth statement in your head, monthly.
