Dr. Marie Langworthy, Shifting Gears: To Your Life & Work After Retirement     
 
Whether you are about to retire, already retired, urged to retire or involuntarily downsized, the retirement experience is a seismic shift from known to unknown. Shifting Gears to Your Life & Work After Retirement will clarify and demystify the confusion, even the panic, surrounding this crucial transition, and help you design your ideal retired life path.
 
Income may not be first on your list for what you will miss most about working. Even more critical, how will you replace your sense of social connection, purpose, mental stimulation, relevance? And how will this sea-change effect your essential relationships?
 
While there are many books to help you with your retirement finances, what about your retirement life? What will engage you and make this final third of your life meaningful and right for you?
 
Shifting Gears will be your guide through the possibly shattering, but ultimately exhilarating, process of defining and pursuing the path best suited to who you have become, and who you want to be when you “grow up” again, this time.
 
Dr. Marie Langworthy, after retiring from 25 years as an educator and administrator, spent a few years supervising student teachers and teaching basic technology skills to the adult community.
