Journal Your Way to Retirement Week 3

Genesis Wealth Advisors
Planning, Retirement

You probably know by now how much you need to save financially for retirement and whether you’ll attain that goal.  But, do you know what you’ll be doing in retirement to fill your days?  The majority of people retire without giving this much thought.  This can lead to boredom, sickness and even depression.

I’ve interviewed many retired people of late and they all have different time frames when they really felt retired.  It ranges from three months to two years.   This next journal question may require you to come back to it a few times because you may need time to ponder.

It is OK if some months are blank.  The future questions are going to help you fill them in.  You may have several months blank.  It is good for you to know this now vs. the day you retire.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
-Walt Disney

Journal #3:
Describe the first twelve months of your retirement by month. For example, if you retire in January, what will that month look like as far as activities, projects, people you will see, etc.   Then, give each month a theme.  December could be “Holidays”.  July could be “Family Vacation”.
