When you plan for your retirement, you probably think about how much money you should have. However, your time is even more valuable in retirement. How do you plan to spend it? Photo by Silvia Honores.
As business site Harvard Business Review points out, even though you may stop working, you can still have a "career" plan for retirement. Where do you want to live? How do you want to spend your time? What expenses do you need to account for? Perhaps most importantly, what foundation do you need to build now so that you can accomplish your goals in the future? The answer to those questions will go a long way towards planning your retirement.
You may even want to keep working in your retirement. Many people end up working not because they have to, but because they want to. Living out your days with nothing to do can become dreadfully boring. Especially if you've spent most of your life up until this point training for work. Having a plan ahead of time can help mitigate that boredom.
