One of the key things to remember about your retirement is that you define it. You determine when and how you want to retire and, with the help of your team of professionals, implement a plan to achieve your retirement goals. It is also important to understand that an established set of goals and objectives are not set in stone, and changes can be made as needed or simply because you change your definition of your retirement. Meet with your team regularly to review your retirement plans so that you can make changes as needed. It is much easier to keep you retirement goals and objectives on track if you are able to determine your current status and identify practical solutions to fill any gaps.
