Refire! Don’t Retire: Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life

By Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz

Book Description 

Refire! Don’t Retire asks readers the all-important question: As you approach the remainder of your life, what are you going to do to make it joyful and meaningful?

Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz point out that too many people see their later years as a time to endure rather than as an exciting opportunity. Both research and common sense confirm that people who embrace these years with gusto — rather than withdrawing or waiting for things to happen — consistently make the rest of their lives the best of their lives.

In the trademark Ken Blanchard style, the authors tell the compelling story of Larry and Janice Sparks, who discover how to see each day as an opportunity to enhance their relationships, stimulate their minds, revitalize their bodies and grow spiritually. As they learn to refire and open up to new experiences, Larry and Janice rekindle passion in every area of their lives.

Readers will find humor, practical information and profound wisdom in Refire! Don’t Retire. Best of all, they will be inspired to make all the years ahead truly worth living.
