An Invitation to Do More of What You Love in a World Hungry for Your Gifts


Why Not Do What You Love by Martha Johnson I created this site to introduce my book, an excellent “prompt” for life reflection for those of any age. Updated as of February 2014, it’s a perfect gift for all ages, particularly those in the midst of a major age-stage transition whether it be graduation or retirement. Check out the blog posts where I have continued since 2010 to illuminate the possibilities that exist for all of us. It is never too late to seek satisfaction and meaning by expressing your strengths and passions in the world. As each of us lives more joyfully on the planet, the ripple effect is palpable to co-workers, families, and communities. We need the contributions of everyone.

 NEWS FLASH for 2015!!

  • Once again, Why Not Do What You Love? will be featured in a non-credit 3-session program of the same title at our local Holyoke Community College starting February 24, 2015. Registration info.
  • NEW Conversation:  Living Fully, etc….for the over 55 crowd at the Holyoke Senior Center.


When the questions nagging at you sound like this:

  • What on earth am I going to DO when I “retire”?
  • When will I dare to take my dreams off the back burner?
  • How can I bring more joy and meaning into my remaining years?

Consider taking time for yourself with an affirming guide and an encouraging sounding board. Together we can honor where you’ve been, articulate what matters to you, and create what’s next.

Get a taste of this book by meandering through the menu, or BUY A COPY.
