So you’re thinking about retiring.
That’s a big decision. There is a good chance you’ll be retired for as long as you worked. Think about that – 20 to 30 years – that’s a long time to be without a paycheck. So I want to offer pointers for those considering retirement and what you can do today to increase the likelihood of an enjoyable retirement.
Planning for retirement is something you do while working and receiving a paycheck. Figuring out how to live when the paychecks stop is not easy.

The goal is to plan an enjoyable retirement, but wait too long and it may vanish.
Here are five steps you can take today to start planning for an enjoyable retirement.
