I have a problem with the word “retirement”. If you look the word up in the dictionary it means to “go away”, the definition even goes so far as to state to become “reclusive”. I find the term outdated and have said before it is time to retire the word retirement. People have told me they start to think, or perhaps worry about retirement about a decade before it happens. They wonder if they have enough money to see them through their retirement? They worry about how they will define themselves after their career, and a real fear for many is how they will manage all that free time?
