It’s easy to imagine an ideal retirement lifestyle, filled with stress-free days in which you are engaging in all those self-fulfilling pursuits you’ve always dreamed of but never had time for. You probably have a nice list of things you would like to do and places you want to go after you retire. Maybe you have an actual “bucket list.”
But how many of those things on your list will you actually do?
Chances are, not very many.
Because many of those items on your list require you to do something differently than you have been accustomed to for most of your life. They may require you to change your habits or change the way you live. Some of them require a lot of planning. Some require you to leave your comfort zone.
The truth is, you are a creature of habit. A lot of those habits have been engrained in you for most of your life.
What will it take to get you started on the path towards the ideal retirement you envision?
