About this title


Patrice Jenkins wrote this book to rescue people who are trapped in their careers. These individuals have prepared financially for retirement but they stay in jobs/careers because they don't know what they would do if they weren't working. After conducting interviews and coaching individuals through the retirement transition process, she learned their resistance boils down to one looming question, What will I do all day?
This question isn't about keeping busy. There are always enough things to do, but who wants to wake up to a to-do list for the next 20-30 years? At the core of What will I do all day? is a deeper emotional question. What will I do all day that will be meaningful, provide direction for my life, keep me engaged in society, and still be fun and rewarding? That's a much harder question to answer than how will I keep busy?
To get over retirement and on with living, you need to understand the deeper issues of retirement. The issues a simple financial strategy or get-away vacation won't solve. What is rarely discussed is how you feel about retirement. In her book, Jenkins helps you identify these core feelings and address your unspoken fears if retirement feels like a long road to the end. You'll get to know what really matters to you, the things you want to build into your retirement plan. You'll learn from other people's experience with retirement what you need to do now to start preparing.
There is life after work, in fact this life probably includes work, but you'll need to get over retirement to start living and enjoying this next stage of life. This book will help you do that!

About the Author:

Patrice Jenkins is an author, speaker, and consultant on topics related to career and retirement transitions. Patrice holds a masters degree in Counseling and a Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology.
Jenkins started studying retirement not to be a retirement expert, but to help people get to the other side of retirement living life on their own terms and going after what they want most in life. Before she could get to this work, she realized she had to understand what is holding people back. She needed to learn why people stay in jobs long after they have the option to retire.
Jenkins' definition of retirement is, making yourself available to the work and play you love most whatever that is. This may be the most important and rewarding work of your life. Especially if you're using your gifts to their fullest! When you look at retirement from this viewpoint, then retirement can be anything you want it to be. That is once you make yourself available to it. The challenge is to figure out what that is. When you're ready to do that, then Patrice is there to help.
