When many people retire they have regrets about things that they wish they had done differently. It does not have to be that way.
To fulfill their version of the American dream many people make a bargain with themselves. They bargain that they will work hard and temporarily set aside some of their desires. In exchange for that, they will someday be able to retire from work, relax and enjoy life. However, many people find themselves with regrets after retiring.
The Washington Post recently wrote about some common regrets and how they can be avoided in “How to retire without regrets.”
Some people are always going to have regrets.
Fortunately, all of the above regrets can be avoided. So if you take them into account now, you do not have to be one of the people who has regrets in retirement.
