Carve your own path and create your dream retirement
Retiring is a goal most people share. It’s baked into the American dream, and most of us dream about it for years, maybe even decades.
As common as that goal is, it doesn’t necessarily mean we have to share the same vision of retirement. The truth is retirement isn’t about crossing some imaginary finish line or closing the door on work for the rest of your life.
It doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing venture. And it doesn’t have to follow the same path as anyone else. In fact, you don’t even have to go with the same program year after year.
It can be easy to forget all of that and get tunnel vision with conventional thinking about retirement. But that just offers the one option, and it’s not always the ideal path to fulfillment.
When we’re able to look past convention, we can start to see some better alternatives. They could help us transition into retirement more easily and adjust to it better.
And may even help us discover more meaningful ways to invest our time and stay connected to the things we love when we retire. If we can do that, our next phase can by deeply enriching and far more satisfying than we may have ever imagined.
