Book Summary – How To Retire Happy Wild and Free

A few years back a colleague recommended that I read Ernie Zelinski’s How to Retire Happy Wild and Free.   It was a GREAT recommendation as I’ve since re-read the book two additional times and recommended it to countless others.

While the book is targeted at folks that are either about to or recently have retired, it’s a great read for anyone.  The author poses a number of questions and suggests a number of ways to help you prioritize how to spend your time in retirement to derive the maximum satisfaction.  The reality is these same questions are just as important pre-retirement as they are post-retirement.

Attached is a summary of my notes from the book.

Enjoy the read.
