Our family has a little tradition that we carry out every New Year’s Eve: dinner at a favorite steak restaurant during which each of us reads off New Year’s resolutions. Of course, nobody is required to disclose all of their resolutions, as some are a little personal and perhaps hard to accomplish.
No matter, the exercise is fun and, if taken just a little bit seriously, thought-provoking. In that spirit, I decided to draw up a list — again, not totally comprehensive — of New Year’s resolutions for my retirement planning. Feel free to ignore what makes no sense in your own world, or poach what helps.
I came up with five resolutions, which frankly surprised me because I can come up with only three for our dinner. I’d love to hear what readers come up with, so feel free to weigh in below.
