Preparing for retirement

One of the things we hardly think much less talk about is the future. And this is due to so many reasons. Religious reasons, spiritual reasons or personal reasons.

It is often said that ‘live for today, for tomorrow is not assured’. But how adequate is that?

There is a saying, ‘early to bed, early to rise. And he who fails to plan, automatically plans to fail’. Not many of us understand the need for and importance of planning for retirement or when to start preparing for it. Hence most people work the number of work years without plans for what they will do after retirement much less knowledge about what comes after.

Retirement is that time of life when one permanently leaves the work force behind, which is usually after the age of 65 years. Lack of adequate preparation for retirement often leaves people vulnerable and prone to hardships leading to life and health complications.

In case you may ask, what has this got to do with women? Well, two reasons.

Mary Helen Nnadi is a John Maxwell certified life coach and trainer specializing in pre-retirement training emotional intelligence training. She is a veteran banker and human resource consultant with over 20 years of expertise in human development.
