Many physicians view retirement as a kind of failure - KevinMD.com | Your Retirement Blueprint | Scoop.it
Not surprisingly, after considering all of this, I've made the decision not to retire any time soon.
Kairos Advisers LLC's insight:

One of the major challenges of retiring is the sense of loss of identity many business leaders and professionals experience. Retirement is not alway our choice, we are often forced into it by extenuating circumstances. 

 

It is important to remember that we are not our job or even our profession. Our lives had meaning before or careers and will have meaning afterwards.

Where health, retirement plans meet

Where health, retirement plans meet | Your Retirement Blueprint | Scoop.it

“Driven by rising costs and the Affordable Care Act, employee health programs are beginning to look like employee retirement plans. Using 401k's and other tools, administrators of those plans have spent decades trying to influence employees to save more money and make better retirement investment decisions.

 

Employers increasingly are approaching their health plans in similar ways, according to a recent survey. The result is a convergence that finds both types of plans trying to use incentives to change employee behavior even as they offload more key decisions and financial responsibility onto employees.”
