Just a quick heads up: the MetLife Mature Market Institute has published a new report: titled Discovering What Matters: Balancing Money, Medicine and Meaning.
Description: “The adage that money can’t buy happiness is supported analytically by new research demonstrating the importance of having purpose in one’s life and that the most content people focus on the non-financial essentials in their lives, even during difficult economic times. Living the “good life” for middle-aged and older Americans is equated with spending time with family and friends, a previously unquantified finding, according to the MetLife Mature Market Institute’s latest study, Discovering What Matters: Balancing Money, Medicine and Meaning, produced in conjunction with leading author, life coach, and executive educator, Richard Leider. They describe the good life in terms of having health, a financial safety net and the time to do what is important to them.”

Will comment in a few days, when I get the chance to take a look at it. Have a nice weekend!
