Today’s Retirement Situation—The Hard Truth

Most people approaching retirement have not thought about what happens after work life ends because the idea of losing one’s identity is terrifying. Have you thought about it? Does it scare you? Make you uncomfortable?

When asked, “What will you do when you retire?” most people respond, “I don’t know,” or “Sleep in, travel, and play their favorite sport.” Then what?

Are you concerned that a life of meaning might slip by? Is a life of true purpose and fulfillment slipping through your fingers right now?

This CEO discovered what he was missing the hard way: Click Here for the Story

Every day at work, you were valued, needed, respected, and were a contributor. What will you do when that steady flow of interaction upon which you thrive dries up? Will you be able to transition to tending your roses without difficulty? Most people have difficulty with the transition and many fall into depression. It doesn’t have to be that way. Retirement doesn’t have to mean the end, but rather the beginning of renewal.

Will you retire or renew?

As we live longer and healthier lives, new retirees are faced with a hidden problem rarely discussed:

What will you do with your retirement time?

Nearly 40% of retirees suffer from depression – but there’s a solution for that…

Until now, nearly all retirement planning has been fiscal. Once your finances are in order, the question still remains: What will you do all day? It’s a much bigger challenge than expected and very few sources address the problem.

Shortly after the euphoria of, “Yahoo! I don’t have to go to work today!” wears off, new retirees often feel:

  • An overall sense of loss
  • Loss of social interaction from fellow employees
  • Lacking in purpose
  • Void of fulfillment
  • No longer needed
  • No longer appreciated for their knowledge
  • Fearful about not knowing their next step
  • Disconnected from society
  • Loss of direction
  • Unsure of where to turn for help 

Buoy Coaching is the leading source of
Non-Fiscal Retirement Planning
and addresses all of these issues and more

A new study from the American Heart Association proves that retirees with a stated Purpose for their retirement life have a 44% less chance of stroke.

Baby Boomers are living longer and clearly wanting to stay active and involved in their community. They are catching on and are now turning their attention to non-fiscal retirement planning.

Still, only 30% of retirees have a clear plan of what they want in their retirement years and how to get it. Those with a plan have clarity of their passions, desires, skills, and know step by step how to make their vision a reality. Buoy Coaching has developed a system to build your Non-Fiscal Retirement Plan of Action.

“When one door closes, another one opens, but we often look so long
and regretfully at the closed door we fail to see the one that has opened.”

~ Alexander Graham Bell ~



Fiscal vs. Non-Fiscal

Most people have a financial plan for retirement. Most do not have a non-fiscal plan. Maybe you have enough money to retire or perhaps you still need additional income. Either way, you’re still faced with the question of: How will you spend your days?  Without a course to follow, it’s easy to drift aimlessly. 

Do You Have a Life-Style Plan?

Can you picture yourself going from your fast paced professional life to a screeching halt and tending roses in your garden? How long will it take for you to be bored?


This is not fiscal-retirement planning. Leave that to your financial planner. This is about using your newly found time to achieve self-actualization; a life with true meaning, authenticity, and solid purpose.

“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments,
but what is woven into the lives of others.”

  • I can unconditionally say that you were absolutely one of the best speakers to appear at our club

    “Larry Jacobson was a dynamic, engaging speaker we felt very lucky to have on stage for our Success Series Event at Sacramento State Alumni Center.

    His keynote presentation “Redefining Retirement, What’s your encore?” was rated highly by our attendees and we can recommend him highly. The audience was engaged, and his comments were definitely thought-provoking to all.

    In his very lively, energizing session, Larry gave them clear tips – and most importantly, actionable suggestions -- on how to implement these valuable strategies.”

  • ... inspiring, thought-provoking, and, frankly, fun!

    It was my pleasure to hear Larry Jacobson speak at the CASE District VII conference in March, where his topic was “Make Passion Your Priority.” He was one of our opening speakers and what a way to kick off our conference!

    The conference theme invited attendees to shake things up and reinvent themselves in order to better serve their institutions in an ever-changing environment. Embracing even minute change is not easy. However, after Larry’s presentation, I felt like I should just go for it! Take on life and my work with all of the gusto I could muster.

    This speaker was inspiring, thought-provoking, and, frankly, fun! Larry helped to set the stage for the rest of our conference – he was exactly what we needed!
