The folks at Royal Bank did a poll. And they discovered that a majority of retirees, 79 percent, enjoy a higher quality of life in retirement.
They also discovered that two in three retirees never use an alarm clock. Retirement, it turns out, means freedom from an alarm clock. And no alarm clock means a higher quality of life.
I guess you know what is going to happen to my alarm clock.
The other finding of interest from this poll is that boomers generally are not as optimistic that quality of life will improve after retirement. Boomers must really love their jobs!
