Show Notes

David Buck, a seasoned professional with over 35 years of experience in business development, has honed a deep understanding of productivity and efficiency beyond mere busyness.  His journey led him to establish Kairos Management Solutions and pioneer the Infinity Lifestyle Design program.  These endeavors are dedicated to assisting professionals grappling with rigid schedules to reclaim valuable personal time.  As a Certified Professional Retirement Coach, David empowers clients to reshape their time management strategies and envision a lifestyle characterized by purpose, ease, and joy—skills that transcend one's career into retirement.

Scheduled for release in April 2024, David's inaugural book, "The Time Optimized Life," is a paradigm shift away from reactive time management toward a proactive approach that fosters purpose, enjoyment, and excitement during retirement.
 Key discussion points we covered during this episode include:

 ·         This topic is crucial since almost 1/3 of our life is spent in retirement.

·         We discuss how your purpose in retirement is tied to lifestyle goals, which are then connected to strategies.

·         We discussed why and how couples must discuss and plan for retirement.

·         Financial advisors need to be a part of your planning – you may say in your strategies you are going to travel the world, but you only have the wealth needed to get to Pittsburgh.

·         For those who say, "I am never going to retire," that is fine, but at some point, your body and mind will not be able to keep that statement going, and you will need a Plan B.

·         The mid-50s is a good time to start planning and taking inventory of your next chapter of life.

·         Only about 40% of people have a robust retirement plan; we discussed how you can be in this group.
 David's expertise, backed by extensive research and coaching experiences, aims to facilitate a more fulfilling retirement for countless individuals.  He practices what he preaches, integrating these teachings into his own life.  Discover more about David and his book, "The Time-Optimized Life," on LinkedIn at   or visit his website at
