Why Retire at All?

The traditional idea of retirement, quitting work at age 65 (or younger) and then sitting in a rocking chair while babysitting the grandkids, is fading away. Even the idea of a retirement filled with travel and hobbies does not have the same ring that it once did. People are living longer, and even with the economic downturn, many baby boomers are better off financially and are healthier than earlier generations ever were. Baby boomers changed everything about America, from scientific breakthroughs (think the artificial heart, the personal computer, DNA testing and the Internet) to women's rights. And they are changing retirement, too. In fact, many of the go-go baby boomer generation are not planning to retire at all.

After all, work gives structure to our lives. It keeps us connected to the larger world, and it gives us a sense of purpose. Look at people who work well into their 70s, 80s and 90s (Warren Buffet, Regis Philbin and many members of Congress come to mind). They do so because they find it fulfilling. Without work, many retirees soon feel adrift and disconnected. And how many rounds of golf can one really play, day after day, without feeling somewhat stuck?

Continuing to work does not mean having to stay at the same job you have had all these years. It may mean starting your own business or non-profit, working part-time somewhere fun (the zoo, a gift shop or child care center) or writing the great American novel. Whatever it is, this much is certain. The baby boomer "retirement" will be different from any kind of retirement that has come before.
