Shape up your retirement lifestyle planning with this simple retirement quiz

Most people don’t like to think about retirement beyond their 401K, IRA or home value. This fill-in-the blanks retirement quiz makes it easy to expand your perspective.

You will quickly realize, retirement is about more than just your financial retirement plan. It is a Retirement LIFESTYLE plan. 

There are many lifestyle changes after retirement you cant forsee right now. But it is a lifestyle that you have the opportunity to shape how you want it. You just need to align it with your Career Plan by cultivating it.

This means the smart way to shape your future retirement lifestyle is by how you conduct your career planning now.

Your current career planning and retirement planning should both take into consideration:

  • When should I retire?

  • Where should I retire?

  • Will I be emotionally ready to retire

  • Investing for retirement math and calculations

What is your version of the ideal retirement lifestyle?

Everyone has their own version of retirement.

For example there is the retire early lifestyle. You may want to retire early, but you may think you can’t retire unless you have a certain sum of money.

Or you may never want to retire. 

But if you want to do it your way, in your desired lifestyle, it must align with your Career Destiny to manifest.
