How to Plan a Great Second Life:

Why not live fully every day of your extra 30 years?


Gordon Burgett’s second edition of How to Plan a Great Second Life: Why not live fully every day of your extra 30 years? helps readers of any age create their own second-life strategy, then provides the tools to make that strategy come true.

In 256 fun-packed pages, the author helps the readers create their own future life map. His straightforward guide for singles or couples helps them (1) review where they are now: skills, money, and health; (2) create a “Dream List,” (3) prioritize and time-peg those dreams, (4) put them into doable action steps, (5) factor in the resources they have to fund them, and (6) put their resulting Action Plan into motion!

The book is primarily designed to be used by those in the 40-60+ age bracket, but it's also an excellent life planning guide for anybody younger interested in their future or for seniors at any age. Its 17 forms, charts, and worksheets make the planning easy and fun.
