Summary
We have reached the end of the retirement age. Coined in the 16th century, the word 'retire' is derived from the French 'retirer', which means to withdraw to a place of safety or seclusion. But that narrative has changed. Retirement, as we know it, has really only been around for a little over 100 years. Today, mature-age Australians (in their 50s, 60s and 70s) are healthier than ever, living longer than at any other point in history, and have a tremendous amount to offer their communities and the Australian economy. Due to four converging realities, retirement as we know it is rapidly becoming redundant. The combination of longer life expectancies, declining government capacity to support us as generously as we age, a reduction in job security, and the challenges many face in funding a multi-decade retirement income, mean we need to completely rethink our approach to this phase of life, while taking a fresh look at the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population. The way in which you understand and frame these challenges, and the mindset you choose to adopt in overcoming them, will contribute greatly to the outcomes you achieve and the wellbeing you experience in retirement. If you understand the retirement playing field and equip yourself with the right knowledge, you can make your retirement transition a transformational phase of your life, rather than an exercise in survival. You have two choices. You can frame these forces as negatives, or you can make a conscious choice to become better informed about the environment in which you will one day transition to after work (whatever that looks like for you), and adapt your plan accordingly. In order to do this, you must first understand what is driving each force. Once you gain deeper insights into these issues, you begin to see the opportunities. I speak to hundreds of people in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond every year about their plans and priorities for the future. The recurring theme is that the earlier you start thinking about how you would like your life to look as you grow older, the more choice and flexibility you will enjoy as you age, and the more likely you are to thrive and achieve the things in life that matter to you. You have the opportunity to visualize the next phase of your life in new ways that will better serve you. Retirement is too often associated with endings. You need to redefine it as the beginning, and as an opportunity to live your life on purpose. Everyone craves meaning, purpose and fulfilment in their 'encore years', but there is no handbook to obtain those things ... until now. One of the aims of this book is to help you understand the challenges and opportunities of the new retirement playing field, and to provide insights, stories and strategies to help you adapt and thrive in this new reality. A key message I want to highlight is that preparing for the retirement years is about so much more than financial planning. Done well, it involves consciously planning all aspects of your life so that you live meaningfully and purposefully for what is, on average, a multi-decade period. Rather than provide a new framework for retirement, I want to share stories about the way retirement is already being redefined by Australians from all walks of life in their 50s, 60s and 70s. Despite the four major challenges confronting you, humans have a tendency to adapt to changing environments, which means a new and more meaningful definition of retirement is emerging
