"Adding years to your life and life to your years!"
Dan Buettner shares some great insights on adding years to your life and life to your years. He suggests that the two most dangerous years in life are the year you are born and the year that you retire. His comments reminded me of a study of Martin Marietta employees, folks who were passionate and committed to their jobs. The company found an overwhelming mortality rate during the first year of retirement because employees, who found extreme purpose in their careers, were suddenly jettisoned into the unknown, lacking the purpose that they had been accustomed to. The company determined to implement a plan to ensure that retirees had a plan before they left the company. I hope that Dan's comments in this 20 minute video are food for thought.
