Most people know what they’re retiring from, but not that many know what they’re retiring to.
On the other hand, going into an unplanned retirement often results in ‘retirement euphoria’. Life is good ̶ you travel; you play golf or other sports whenever you can; you visit family and friends; you pursue your hobbies and/or complete your ‘retirement projects’.
Often, however, after about 24 months, emptiness starts to set in. I’ve listened to the frustrations: “You’ve got to get him a job; he’s driving me crazy around the house.” Or as a guy once said to me, “How much vacuuming can you do anyway?”
Sadly, this retirement euphoria is often followed by depression. For others, it’s boredom. I don’t know which is worse, but I do know bored people spend a lot more money. Often, it’s money they can’t afford to spend.
Professional advice exists to help you make the best use of the resources available to you and to deliver the best outcome for you. Perhaps, with some planning and guidance, you could be enjoying a more fulfilling life in retirement.
As they say, ‘You don’t know what you don’t know.’ Why not find out what you don’t know before it’s too late? It’s easier than you think.
