What does “Retirement Redux” mean?


Screen Shot 2014-09-05 at 7.24.59 PMSeveral of my very astute and erudite readers have asked what the title of this blog, “Retirement Redux” means.

Well, the word redux comes from the Latin term reducere, which means bring back. In English, the term signifies that the noun it modifies has been revived, brought back, restored, or otherwise revisited. It is often implied that something that is revived is also been somehow changed, made more relevant, or given increased importance..

My goal is to help you rethink  your retirement and preparation for retirement, whenever that may occur — so you view it as not just the end of work but a wonderful new beginning. Thus my decision to adopt “Retirement Redux: Reinventing Retirement” as the name for this website.
