How are you investing in your life? In our culture, we give attention to investing our money to prepare for retirement. You may sit down with your investment planner one or more times per year to strategize about your investments and get a map of your financial situation. But do you sit down with someone to intentionally look at the life you have saved or are saving your money to live?
Let's take a look at three levels of where you are investing your time and energy and priority for a meaningful next chapter in your life. What matters for what's next?
The first level of where we invest time, money and energy is getting the 'things and stuff' that we want for our life at this stage. Maybe it's a different or second home, a new RV, a vehicle, or different furniture. Maybe it's finally adding that bathroom we've always wanted, or buying a new sewing machine or equipping a shop for our hobbies.
