Should You Develop A Retirement Life-Change Plan? How?

|I have had a retirement financial plan for a number of years now. But when I got serious about looking at retirement, I found there was not a lot of information on planning for a significant life change; which it is. There are polls on where to live (but not why change), there is information on working after retirement, there is information on travel. But nowhere was there a model plan for relationships, volunteerism, hobbies to pursue, community involvement, health issues and finances. Last year, I started a blog about my personal voyage to retirement with the thought of capturing and sharing stories, from many sources, about this life change and how to plan for it. http://voyagetoretirement.wordpress.com/ It has financial information, links to articles and even a retirement contract for couples. I don't profess to have the answers, but there are a lot of stories. Let me know if this helps.|
