Additional Reference Materials - "Living Your Life In 8,000 Days"

What does the picture on the front of your puzzle box look like as you put together your "picture it perfect" for your future and retirement?

Everyone knows what they are retiring from. Very few people have a clear vision for what they will be retiring to. It is critically important to have a plan as people are living longer than before. For example, your employment can be part of your identity. Going to work each day can satisfy your mental, physical and emotional needs. Once you retire, what will you be doing to proactively meet these needs?

The future holds an array of options, challenges and decisions to make. Three questions that you should be asking include: What will I do? Where will I live? and Who will I spend my time with? These three broad questions then lead to more self discovery and follow up questions for yourself and family.

We encourage you to refer to the materials below that we referenced during our recent event, "Living Your Life In 8,000 Days."
