retirement planning

34254115_sRetirement planning starts by picking an age and lifestyle that you want to enjoy when you reach that age. The next step is to set the goals you must reach in order to get there. Getting there is based upon the amount of time remaining and the investment formula you use to achieve your retirement goals.

Notice that we said “get there.”

We assume that when you reach retirement age – you want to be in good health and able to enjoy a rich and active lifestyle. A lot of people forget this point. Hey! To “live it up” you’ve got to – live. Managing your health and stress is an important part of reaching your financial goals.

A lot of people forget about this part.

An enthusiastic investor will often work obsessively to reach the savings level they need to sustain their personal goals. There is nothing wrong with working hard… however, working “smart” is almost always more effective. Working smart means not trying to do everything yourself – but relying instead upon the guidance of experts to help get you reach those retirement goals.
