“RETIREMENT – PERSPECTIVE & VISION”

Retirement planning must include our personal vision and passion extended far beyond our own lifetime.  It includes long-range planning and preparation for the development of  a retirement plan that not only provides for retirement, but requires for provisions for remaining retired.

Why should it extend far beyond our own lifetime?  The retiree must include in the plan for the subsequent needs of the spouse.  This requires the contingencies that must be considered that may occur regarding age, health, and unforeseen emergencies, etc.

One of the  worst enemies of retirement planning is the frustration of not knowing where to  start.  Procrastination can take control and cause us to “not do today what we can do tomorrow.”  Many times tomorrow never comes and we arrive at retirement without reaching the goals we only thought about.  Thinking about these goals doesn’t go very far without action on our part.

  • Employ the services of an attorney for the preparation of your will.
  • Obtain the services of a Certified Public Account for getting your “financial house”   in  order.
  • Consult with a reputable financial advisor to begin developing a retirement plan detailing your retirement goals.

At this point, are you through with the  process?  NO!  You have only begun, but you are way ahead of many people today.  You may be ahead of  the majority of the people.  As you travel through the years to retirement, you will face many changes and this requires having a retirement plan that is flexible and provides for the ability to make adjustments not only before retirement, but after retirement, and yes, even after death.

You are not the only one needed on your retirement team.  You need the professionals listed above, and most importantly, you need your spouse.  You may want to include your children in order to keep them informed of your retirement goals.

START TODAY AND PUT YOUR TEAM TOGETHER. 

When is the last time your had a call from your financial advisor?  When is the last time you had a review of your financial condition?  What changes need to be made in your  will?

Is your team functioning?  If not, some changes may be in order.  If you have an old plan that hasn’t been reviewed late, you may need some very important changes.  If you are retired and don’t see how you can remain retired, you definitely need some changes (you need to remain retired).

Your must assume the role of leader and see that your retirement team is in place and functioning.

1 Chronicles 22:1-19

King David’s personal vision and passion extended far beyond his own lifetime.  He could see the bigger picture.  Although he knew Solomon would build the temple, he did some long-range planning and preparation for its construction.

David organized the team to make preparations for the construction of the temple.  He appointed stone cutters, gathered cedar logs, acquired mounds of iron for the nails, and even gave Solomon a solemn charge to finish the job.  This is the kind of thing that separates leaders from followers.  Leaders see…

  • Beyond Others:  The look past their own future to the generations that follow.
  • Before Others:  They see what must happen long before others are ready.
  • Bigger Than Others:  They have a larger than usual vision of what can happen.

David not only prepared the materials for the construction of the temple and challenged his son to faithfully build the Lord’s house, but he also commanded all the leaders of Israel to help Solomon complete the task.

Worthy visions outlast those who cast them.

Have a great day!
