The retirement industry controls over $37 trillion (trillion with a “t”) in funds, and employs more than one million (mostly highly paid) professionals. This massive industry floods all media with a vision of retirement that requires their existence: the permanent vacation. What if that’s not right for you? What if you want or need another version? This talk is about theories of late-career and post-career human development, meaning making, planning for the time of retirement (a third half of life), and that subset of humans who love work over leisure. There is definitely more than one right answer. Whether you’re young and thinking long-term or getting closer to traditional retirement ages—or even in the midst of retirement itself—this talk can help you think more richly about your options and your plans. Based on Dr. Don Asher’s recent dissertation: “You Can Only Play so Much Golf”: The Retirement Experiences of People Who Really Love Their Work, and ongoing research.
