David Comden speaks with George Alger about how to find purpose and enjoyment in retirement.
He cites a statistic that people who retire at age 55 or earlier are 89% more likely to die within ten years, compared to people who continue to work until 65. Hence, personal purpose and meaning are fundamental to enjoying retirement.
As a result, Comden discusses finding a purpose for one’s future and introduces the concept of “Ikigai,” which is a Japanese term meaning “A reason for being.” Comden suggests ikigai as an aide that individuals may use to help figure out what to do, or what one would like to try, during their retirement.
