“How many Baby Boomers would you expect were thinking of retirement way back in the 1960s and 1970s? But now their time is here. How many Gen-Xers were thinking about life after work in the 1980s and 1990s? But now their time is quickly approaching.
The point is, the calendar shows no mercy. You are young and carefree, until one day when you aren’t anymore.
One day it will be the Millennials’ turn to face the realities of continuing to look after yourself and your family, and maybe even do some of the things that you want to do for fun, in a rising cost world, after you no longer have a paycheque coming in. Unless human nature changes, which it won’t, the number one fear that people have as they approach retirement is running out of money.”
