Good article. Boomers (like me), don't want to "die at their desk" or "retire to a boring meaningless life". Author Jack Beauregard speaks about a Third Way - The Platinum Years(SM), the best 10, 20 or 30 years of life. (I liked his ideas so much, I became his business partner!) Jack doesn't give financial, business, tax or legal advice; he educates Boomers and their advisors about the practical steps to personal transition planning such as: address your fears, determine your decision-making style, learn to counter-balance both to make better, more informed decisions. Plan out ten aspects of your life, create options, narrow the options to make real decisions - then IMPLEMENT. It's a little more complex than that, but that is the essence of it.

While many in the media continue to talk about the retirement tsunami that is the baby boomers, the reality is that the real retirement legacy of the baby boomers may be to readjust our perception of retirement not as encompassing the aromaty inawera final one-third of one's life, but rather as bateria vision a return to the idea that retirement - true retirement - is meant to encompass perhaps only the final 10-15% of one's lifetime. Only when they feel they've made their contribution to society, will the boomers be ready to retire with one foot in the grave.
