Blind Spot #7: I Must Retire
Social and peer pressure doesn’t just happen to teenagers. “I must retire by age 65, or before” is a social stigma that may be more harmful than helpful these days. With our longer and longer life expectancies, retiring early, and perhaps under prepared, can diminish your odds of success. Two of the biggest causes of depression in retirement are not having a sense of purposes or accomplishment. And not having all your working buddies around anymore can make retirement seem pretty lonely too. You don’t HAVE to retire and you shouldn’t have a retirement age in your head if you don’t have a real retirement plan. It is alright if you work longer than 65. Besides, a few extra years of savings can’t hurt.
