Additional Information

Your retirement years should be the best of your life. Free from the burden of making a living, you have in front of you an opportunity for personal development and a time for spiritual growth. These are your years; it is up to you to embrace them and ensure that you enjoy an enriching journey. The Spirit of Retirement is your guiding light to creating and sustaining the post-work life you have always envisioned. Bestselling author and retired Fortune 500 executive James A. Autry illuminates a fulfilling path of meaningful endeavors, healthful reflections, and positive outlooks that will help make these years your most treasured. This engaging book highlights many important aspects of your new life, such as • preparing for the transition; • determining who you want to be for the rest of your life and how to get there; • reconnecting with those you love, appreciating your roots, and reinvigorating friendships; • allowing time to develop your inner self. Inside are moving anecdotes from people whose retirement years are filled with beauty, deep meaning, and purpose. Their stories illustrate the good life and special time that retirement should be and what it can be for you when you follow the guidance and apply the principles presented in this book.

This is the first book a 55 year old person should read if he or she is thinking about retirement. Ok. Let say you have decided to retire. Then what will you do? You cannot play golf seven days a week. That gets old. You have some free time and maybe some discretionary income. How do you figure out your passions and invest your time in whatever causes generate meaning in your life? No one can tell you what to do. You need to discover your personal path. You will be unhappy with retirement unless you do something that is meaningful and fulfilling to you. You have to feel that you are important and doing something that you feel good about.
I was impressed with James Autry when I saw the interview he did with Bill Moyers. I had not heard of him before. My husband had such a bad attitude about retirement. I did not. I saw it for what it was and what it could be.
Autry's thoughts were very much what I thought, but could not express. This book does get into theology which I could do without, but he is quite informative, logical and best of all positive.
Whether you are nearing retirement or recently retired, this is a great book if you are wondering about how to spend your retirement years. The book includes some wonderful James A. Autry poems and is very consistent with his other works such as "Love and Profit, the Art of Caring Leadership" which I also recommend. As the title suggests, this book really is about the "spirit" of retirement and really is focused on the psychological challenges of retirement rather than the financial issues.
