Reviews: Planning your retirement – The Guardian
PLANNING YOUR RETIREMENT simply talks about pre and post – retirement ethics and etiquette. It is the workers’ own manual, which has to do with the conduct or preparations and orientation of someone approaching the retirement age. It is a practical guide which directs one’s path after retirement.
For some, retirement can be very pleasant, beautiful and fruitful, very profitable indeed. While for others, it could be empty, confusing, and disappointing, accompanied by uncertainty, anxiety and psychological crisis which can lead to manifestation of some hidden illnesses in the person.
Why all these? The workers under the second category above failed to think and plan for their future SUCCESS, while still enjoying life away at work. They failed to realize that under any circumstance, retirement must come, either through death or physical disengagement at the compulsory retirement age. They failed to have any association with a positive preparation for tomorrow, because according to their understanding, tomorrow will surely take care of itself.
They usually forget that it is a wise person that keeps the pot of water filled against dry season during the “NOW” rainy season. It is only a tomorrow that has been prepared for, that would easily take care of itself. There is no magic in it. No wonder some retirees die soon after their disengagement from 30 or more years of customized daily routine! Some soon develop neurosis, which if care is not taken, can lead to an incurable stroke or sudden death.
The author of this simple, yet wisdom-filled book, has successfully reminded readers that it is logical and wise to begin to ‘plant both our coconut and cocoa seeds’ few years ahead of retirement. They will be ready for harvesting in the first or second year of retirement as they are better than ‘maize, tomatoes and green vegetable seeds’, which many are occupied with, which, of course, is an evidence of bad planning for the future.
The coconut tree is an all-season plant, which lasts a life time for the owner; so is the cocoa tree, because it can also outlive its owner if properly taken care of. Both can still keep producing fruits 50 years after the first harvest. Only those who planted long-term yielding plants in the likes of coconut and cocoa trees can enjoy an anxiety, complicated-free retirement life. Raimi is teaching us what or how the form of our individual retirement coco-nut and cocoa plants could be.
“PLANNING YOUR RETIREMENT is a book on retirement ethics and etiquette. It is a workman’s manual on what he needs to do to prepare for his graceful retirement in old age. Written by Babatunde Raimi, a distinguished wealth in retirement coach.
In PLANNING YOUR RETIREMENT, Raimi systematically demystifies the mysteries around retirement, because it is a journey everyone must undertake. But it is not the destination. Given that relinquishing one’s job, owing to old age, is a must for everyone makes it beneficial for every worker to own a copy of this book to avoid the pitfalls and regrets of retirement. The book has to do with preparations for the ever-approaching retirement. It is a practical guide directing every worker for retirement.
For those prepared, retirement can be pleasant, beautiful, fruitful and profitable, while for the unprepared, it could be empty, confusing and disappointing, accompanied by uncertainty and anxiety, which sometimes leads to psychological crisis to retirees.” – Bayo Ogunmope
