A few months back, I read an interesting story…
Once upon a time, there was a Chief Executive Officer who took his best employees for a tour of the universe. While on their way, they reached a very dark thick natural green forest, which they had to bear to go through.
While walking through the forest, they saw some sharp stones; some of which got stuck under their walking shoes.
A deep loud voice was had saying: “You can go with some of these stones and bear the burden for if you do not take any of the stones, you will live to regret.”
Some said: “Let me take: some small stones, I will pick some more, I will take one as a souvenir; while others simply did not want to risk to take any.”
When they were very tired, after getting out of the forest, wondering what kind of tour this was, they sat down to take a rest and refresh themselves. They then discovered that the stones were actually clear diamonds.
Reality then set in: those who took “one regretted not having taken more; those who took more regretted why they did not take all while those who didn’t take any regretted not having taken at least one.”
What does this have to do with planning for retirement?
Plenty, actually. This is because, colleagues, on daily basis, we walk around, past or near similar diamonds without noticing them. These diamonds are: savings, investments, businesses, plans and actions in your life and retirement, among many others. The list is endless.
You can benefit from each one of them or a combination of them. The gist of all this is the fact that if you can read this article, you potentially have the capacity to prepare for an enjoyable retirement life. But instead of just talking about it here, let me show you the entire retirement system in action.
You do not want to regret for not at least taking a look, right?
