I know, I know, I know. It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted. (Thanks to the three of you that noticed. Even though one of you is relate to me, I still appreciate it.) Good thing I didn't make "posting to my blog more regularly" a New Year's resolution.
This morning I started a new writing class which was so much fun and has really inspired me to get back to it. I'll be back to my not-very-consistent posting schedule soon. I've been so busy I haven't even had a moment to post links to my last two posts at U.S. News & World Report. Ironically, one is about achieving the optimal balance in retirement, something which I haven't actually achieved over the last couple of weeks.
I used to think that the only thing preventing my life from having the ideal work/life balance was work. I have learned over the last couple of years that simply removing work from the work/life balance equation does not guarantee the optimal balance. For more on that, check out this week's post How to Find Balance in Retirement.
Today is January 15th, which means that so far, about 100,000 baby boomers have turned 65 this year. An awful lot has been made about how these folks will change the very definition of retirement. I'm not so sure I buy it. When I read the details of the latest AARP study on the boomers that will be retiring this year, I don't quite see the retirement revolution that many have written about. Decide for yourself, some of the statistics are in my post, Why Baby Boomers Won't Reinvent Retirement.
Now it's 66 degrees today, so I'm going to go strike the right balance by getting outside and enjoying this fabulous weather.
