I had a thirty-year-old client make a comment to me recently about retirement. She said it was too far off to think clearly about it and made a point to say it is 30 years from now.
This really stuck with me, and I have been thinking about it ever since. It made me curious, why does she believe it is 30+ years off?
I think it is simply because it is the status quo. It is when social security becomes available. It is a time when most people think they are to retire. It is what we are told retirement age is.
