“We don’t stop playing because we grow old…we grow old because we stop playing!”

— George Bernard Shaw

Don’t stop playing! Specifically, don’t stop “playing” after you stop working. What Bob means by “playing” is making sure activities from your work or personal life continue into retirement or transition. The “playing” that he refers to should be done daily and must be fun, relaxing, and invigorating.
