We read a study about baby boomers this week that gave an optimistic outlook for our retirement happiness. Overall, Dr. Bob Deutch found that baby boomers are a very positive bunch. He says that we are interested in the process - in other words the journey can be as much fun as the destination. For another, we tend to be much less cynical than folks in younger generations. Bottom line: We will find happy and fulfilling retirements, even if the game might have gotten harder!
