This week, I discovered a fun tool that can help us all be more ready for retirement. I don’t think it’s new, so I am surprised I hadn’t seen it before, because I pay a lot of attention to retirement information. I guess that just goes to show that we always have more to learn, no matter how much we think we already know!
The tool is provided the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College — one of the premiere sources of quality information on retirement. I tell you that because I want you to know it’s trustworthy. They have other great resources too.
The fun (and enlightening) part is that it prepares us to make better decisions about retirement issues by alerting us to natural human tendencies that can work against us. It’s called “Curious Behaviors That Can Ruin Your Retirement.” I enjoyed it — it took about 10 minutes, and explained things in clear language with great examples.
I’d encourage everyone to check it out — at least everyone who wants the best retirement possible, especially if you’re over 50. Personally, I think I might go back to it about once a year, just to keep myself on my toes!
