According to William Bernstein, a neurologist and co-founder of investment management firm Efficient Frontier Advisors, having a good idea of how you’ll spend those post-work years is critical to how happy you’ll be. As he says in the Wall Street Journal, “‘Golf’ is not a plan.”Bernstein provides a simple equation to predict how happy you’ll be after leaving the workforce:

Retirement Happiness = [How Much You Dislike Your Job] x [How Much You Want to Do Something Else]
