Sometimes you hear advice given to you by older people when you are young and it just doesn’t resonate. You are in a particular phase in your life and you may find it difficult to step outside of the moment and consider these conservative notions.
However, when it comes to retirement planning younger adults would do well to heed the advice of elders who may have made mistakes that they cannot recover from.
The baby boomer generation is reaching the age at which people typically retire. Various surveys have been conducted, and a significant percentage of these people are saying that they are never going to be able to retire because they simply don’t have the necessary financial underpinning.
If you start to get a bit weary of the work world when you reach your 50s and you recognize that you may never be able to retire this realization can certainly land with a profound thud.
On the other side of the coin, if you exercise some uncommon wisdom as a young adult you can avoid this fate. Time is your friend when you are planning for retirement when you get started early enough. Even modest contributions into retirement accounts can add up considerably over the decades.
Smart investments can also be a part of a comprehensive long-term financial plan that leads to the fruition of your retirement goals.
What separates those who retire comfortably from those who must continue to work throughout their entire lives? Two things that immediately come to mind are intelligent planning and financial discipline.
