During my 20’s it was easy to live in the present, only ever thinking of retirement as being a far-off fuzzy “what if” scenario.
The best time to start investing is 20 years ago. The second best time to start investing is today. Lots of us realize that we’ve lost some time that could have been spent investing, yielding a lot of future income and security.
So far, so good is all I can say at this point. My quarterly increments are working out quite well, even though I’m a bit behind on the savings portion of this quarter’s plan.
I read a story on the NBCNews.com website of a 123-year-old man living in Bolivia. Of course, this got me thinking, “What if I live 40+ years past the age of retirement? Could my funds stretch that far?”
