Unprepared baby boomers should fear retirement

I find that retirement scares me a little.

Not just the “will I have enough money” but also the “what will I do” aspect. As part of the working world, most of our waking hours are ocupied by the job so we just need to entertain ourself on the weekends.

But in retirement every day will be mine to exploit or waste and I am just not sure if I have enough interests to keep me busy in retirement for 20-30 years.

It this a legitimate fear of am I making a lot of nothing?

Take a look at 4 fears about retirement where I try to figure this out. You may find my fears are misplaced or you may find retirement a bit scary just as I do.

In the end, we all want to live a fulfilling retirement life.
