“RETIREMENT: MAKING THE TOUGH CALL”

Retirement doesn’t just happen.  And, remaining retired doesn’t just happen.  There are tough calls from the start and  continue  through the accumulation period to reach your retirement goals.

The first tough call is the decision to develop a retirement plan.  Without a plan, you will face many difficult decisions during the accumulation period.  Many people fail because of an inability for making a tough call.

Here are some of the guidelines for making a tough call:

  • Tough calls are required to develop a plan for retirement.
  • Do your homework.  Research can make or break a decision.
  • Set a deadline.
  • Make sure the timing is right.  The earlier you start, the more successful you will be.
  • Seek counsel.  Choose your team (attorney, CPA, and financial advisor) together by selecting the right people
  • Make your decisions on the current economic conditions and research.
  • Develop a plan that will enable you to make the tough call when circumstances and  goals change.
  • Flexibility in your retirement plan will allow for adjust during the accumulation period and remaining retired.

The most exciting part of my job as a financial advisor, is counseling the future and/or present retiree in making the tough calls.

Jeremiah 42:1-43:13

Most leaders don’t look forward to  making tough calls.  Jeremiah had to make a tough call when his people rejected God’s solution to a dilemma.

Many leaders fail because of an inability to make tough decisions.  Consider some of the guidelines for making a tough call:

  •  Accept tough calls as a requirement of leadership.
  • Do your homework.  Research can make or break a decision.
  • Don’t procrastinate.  Set a deadline.
  • Make sure the timing is right.
  • Seek counsel from the right people.
  • Make your decisions on the principles and values you believe in.
  • Develop systems that enable you to make a tough call.
  • Understand the emotional expense of making a tough call.
  • Recognize your part and  God’s part.
  • Pray for discernment and courage.

Have a great day!
