Successfully navigate life's biggest transitions
with a little help.

"Forgiveness means letting go of the hope for a better past."

Retirement is an incredibly new phenomenon, given wings by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's 1935 Social Security Act which made workers pay for their own old-age insurance with the hope that the final phase of life be dominated by leisure and paid for by savings and benefits accumulated in the employment phase of life.

This idea of retirement is not only very, very young, but it's founded on the premise that 65 years old is old, and that those who are "old" are no longer capable of useful work.

Even those who have the means to chase after a merry life of shuffleboard, scrap-booking, whiskey, and golf prefer to keep working.

"You can feel unmoored and bereft when you stop working", said Cameron Powell, a former Justice Department lawyer. "The sense of busyness and the frenetic actively disappear, but your compulsions stay with you. The imagined time on the beach, now real, becomes a hell of ennui, and you go on a secular search for meaning."

"When Guy Johnson retired from his tax management position at Unilever, one of the world's largest consumer products companies, he was sure that he was prepared. But he was fooling himself. "I lost myself when my wife, Barbara, and I moved to Sarasota, FL, from Bergen, NJ. I planned my retirement financially, but I didn't plan it otherwise."
