Reach Your Retirement ASAP
No one ever said they wished they never retired early. If anything, most people wish they could retire before they are actually able to. Yet while the retirement age seems to be getting older and older for some, it is possible to retire early.
Keep Your Mind Focused on Retirement
Your spending is the biggest obstacle in the way of early retirement. While you might see your paycheck and want to spend every dollar, the best thing you can do for yourself—and your ability to retire—is spending less than you earn. Start by putting at least 10 percent of your paycheck into a savings account. Remember, you want to pay yourself first.
You also want to take advantage of money when and where you can. For example, does your company offer to match your 401K contributions? Take advantage! Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. It could mean the difference in years of when you are able to retire.
Don’t forget: When it comes to retirement, the earlier the better. When you first start your career in your 20s, you probably don’t have retirement on your mind—but you should. The earlier you start saving for retirement, the better off you are when you come to retirement age.
