Refire! Don?t Retire asks readers the all-important question: As you approach the remainder of your life, what are you going to do to make it joyful and meaningful? Ken Blanchard and Morton Shaevitz point out that too many people see their later years as a time to endure rather than as an exciting opportunity. Both research and common sense confirm that people who embrace these years with gusto?rather than withdrawing or waiting for things to happen?consistently make the rest of their lives the best of their lives.In the trademark Ken Blanchard style, the authors tell the compelling story of Larry and Janice Sparks, who discover how to see each day as an opportunity to enhance their relationships, stimulate their minds, revitalize their bodies, and grow spiritually.

Don?t Retire. Best of all, they will be inspired to make all the years ahead truly worth living.

Editorial Reviews

"Both founders of their own companies, coauthors of Refire! Don't Retire , Blanchard and Shaevitz encourage readers to make the rest of their lives healthy, joyful, and meaningful, and to use humor, stories, and self-reflection tools as part of that process... Refire! serves as a pep talk." —  Library Journal Booksmack! “Once in a while a book comes along that should be featured on every talk show. Refire! Don’t Retire is just such a book. Read it and you will experience aging in a whole new way. A must-read for anyone who plans on getting old.” —Richard Leider, bestselling author or coauthor of The Power of Purpose, Repacking Your Bags, and Life Reimagined “If you answer only one-third of the questions at the end of each major section, this book will be worth its weight in gold! It is not only for those considering retirement but also for anyone interested in the pursuit of love, learning, and longevity.” —Beverly Kaye, founder of Career Systems International and coauthor of Love ’Em or Lose ’Em; Love It, Don’t Leave It; and Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go “Refire! Don’t Retire is an enlightening and powerful read. It really hit home with me. When you’ve coached basketball for more than thirty years, as I have, you start to think about and wonder what’s next in life. This book is a great plan for that moment.” —John Calipari, Head Men’s Basketball Coach, University of Kentucky, and three-time winner of National Coach of the Year “‘Refire!’ is the new battle cry for a generation about to ‘retire.’ That is the language of the past. This current generation closes one door as another one opens—ready to refire as leaders of the future.” —Frances R. Hesselbein, president and CEO, The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute “What Blanchard and Shaevitz have really done is change our whole perspective on time. Instead of an older person feeling like a ‘has-been,’ each is encouraged to become a ‘will be.’ We are not our past—we are the possibilities of adventures in our future.” —Natasha Josefowitz, author of Too Wise to Want to Be Young Again and Been There, Done That, Doing It Better
