The idea that an individual should retire to a life of leisure, golf, and cruises in the so-called “golden years” is an obsolete idea—an idea who time has passed. As Dr. Ken Dychtwald says in a number of books and articles, “let’s retire retirement”! Bill Ellermyer in an interview with ESEP's Brian Conners explains that extensive research shows that people who retire or “heaven forbid” take an early retirement, greatly reduce their chances of living a long and more importantly, fulfilling life. Frequently individuals who retire with little real purpose after a life of achievement find that a life of leisure, entertainment, and passivity creates a scenario that produces an unwanted result; they become bored sick or worse.
