Once in retirement, Dr. Dunlop stressed the importance of  maintaining and enhancing relationships with family and friends.  Strong personal relationships are the key to resisting the temptation to become too self-centered, when work is no longer your focus.  He talked about doing new things like travel and exploring subjects than have always been interesting to you.  He has written a new book on this subject called Retiring Well: Strategies.... which can be obtained through Amazon at pre-publication price.
