    #2 Understand Your Investment

    How are your assets invested and why have they been invested that way. Retirement isn't the end of the story it is just a new chapter and understanding you may have 10-20-30 years in retirement is important when thinking about asset allocation.

    Get a good grasp on your expenses as well. Most people know what they make and what the save but the rest just goes in the expense column. Going through the details is important.

    #5 Goals

    There’s so much impact you can make by planning. Not only will you be more committed to carrying out your goals if you take the time to write them down in a roadmap form, but you will also experience the power of the micro-moment if you know how to do it right.

    Imagine if you dedicated what breaks down to be an average of 1.4 hours of weekly planning during your retirement, without a full-time gig, where you have the freedom and liberty to really take ownership of what you want to focus on.
