Share Article

In The Art of Retirement, Gary Williams explains why retirement planning is much more than making sure you have enough money. The financial aspect of planning your retirement is just part of the picture. Being armed with knowledge of behavioral finance will allow you to avoid costly mistakes due to how our brain deals with money and financial issues.

The great thing about life, just like this book, once one chapter ends, another one begins.— Ronnie Lott, Former NFL Player, Hall of Famer, and Founder of All Stars Helping Kids Foundation

The definition of retirement means different things to different people…and so can retirement planning. It can focus on finances or lifestyle and can include many variables such as location, activities, and health care. Retirement planning is much different—and more difficult—than planning for other goals in life.

But doing it right is like creating your own masterpiece!

THE ART OF RETIREMENT by Gary S. Williams, with a foreword by NFL Hall of Fame member Ronnie Lott, is an essential guide to understanding retirement planning from a wide range of perspectives. Williams delves into key topics including money (in particular how it relates to happiness), choosing a lifestyle during retirement, and leaving a legacy. He also explores The Art of Investing, explaining a such concepts as risk and diversification, unique investment strategies, and determining when and how to find a financial advisor if one is needed.

Williams uses the story of Michelangelo and his art to facilitate the creation of your masterpiece. What do Michelangelo and his life have to do with a book about retirement planning? As Williams explains, Michelangelo overcame great adversity and relentlessly pursued his dreams. “We all know that Michelangelo was a genius,” Williams writes. “How did Michelangelo move among these fields with such outstanding success, achieving mastery in each one? He was encouraged and recognized, and he was immersed in his love for each of his masterpieces. His inner drive led him to greatness; he let nothing get in his way. These elements are what you need to build your own extraordinary career and life.”
