It’s true we can’t see the future – not the long-term future anyway. You can take a good guess at where you’ll be next week, where your next holiday might be or how this quarter’s results will look.
But what about further ahead? We can’t predict, but we can prepare.
“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.” – Arthur Schopenhauer
If you find pensions a bit of a turn-off, you’re not alone. Even if you’re thinking about retirement you’re far more likely to spend your evening leafing through a brochure about motorhomes than one about pensions. But remember it’s the pension that makes the motorhome (or whatever your passion is) possible.
There really is no ‘too early’ to have your pension plan in place – it’s not just about building up the means to live the life you really want when you retire, it’s about making sure you stay tax efficient along the way and when you get there.
Dust off your crystal ball
What about even further ahead? If you’ve dedicated your life to making a success of your business, you may be in a position where you can become ‘job optional’ whenever you want. But what if there’s still more you can do? What if you could ensure the wellbeing of your family and even the generations that follow, who’ll face their own challenges in future?
We’re talking about legacy. If you have the means to do it, there’s no time like right now to make sure the people you love are able to benefit from your wealth when you’re no longer around. Of course, nobody likes to think about it, but getting your plans in place now could make the world of difference to other lives.
Planning now means establishing peace of mind, confidence and assurance, while you’re still young enough to fully enjoy your own life and retirement.
