Susan Keefe reviews and promotes poetry, fiction and non-fiction, and is also author of the Toby's Tails series of children's books.
Bob Boylan, spent his career training middle and senior management to, “Deliver Training that Takes,” and has authored two books on the subject. Now retired himself, he has written this incredibly motivational book, which inspires readers to take responsibility for the rest of their lives, and offers positive suggestions and guidance on how to do so. He is a self-confessed seed planter, and boy does he do it well! After sowing the seeds in his reader’s minds, he explains what he means using examples, and invites you to use the suggestion as a discussion starter, in your head, or with friends and family.
Retirement happens at various ages now, no-longer is it necessarily sixty-five. However, it is, to some, an intimidating prospect. All of a sudden a routine, or a series of them disappear, and instead there’s this open space where order used to be, opportunities to do new things, and no time constraints, for some this can be scary.
This entertaining little book is a self-help guide for those who may be struggling with the loss of this structure. The author is here to help you explore and embrace all the fun, new, and exciting opportunities which await you.
Of course, there may be factors which will automatically affect the options available to you, your mind, body, or spirit may cause some restrictions. However, the author invites you to explore if these obstacles really exist, or are they a self-defence barrier erected against change? After all, some people love change, challenges and new things, but there are also others who don’t, and can’t see the ‘wood for the trees,’ as the saying goes.
You may want to get fitter, explore the world, or your own country more, stay up late, or take on a new hobby. Whatever you want to do the author is here to encourage you to look forward in life, after all as he rightly says, “There is a reason the windshield is bigger than the rearview mirror.” He encourages us to think outside the box, and even remove it, reach for our goals, and live those dreams.
Aimed at retirement, I have to say this book will inspire everyone who reads it to be the best they can be. Bob Boylan advises his readers to grab the proverbial bull by the horns, embrace the future, look forward, not back! As the famous quote says, “Life is not about the breaths you take. It’s about the moments that take your breath away.” Highly recommended!
He is ready to talk to your group about ” the value of seeing your life through the lens of gratitude.” When you habitually see your life that way, you have a joyful, exciting and very fulfilling life! Bob delivers a strong, memorable, energized message to his audiences. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
