Google the words ?retirement planning? and you?ll mostly see, for pages and pages, savings-and pension-related content. There is nothing on actual retirement planning, which I believe is more about your life, and less about money. Having steady finances to last you throughout retirement plays a significant role in quality of life, but what?s more important is your life-planning. In other words, what is it that you are going to do once you leave the workforce? You can retire from your career, but you can?t retire from life.
