Are You Happy?

Key Takeaways

  • The old adage that money doesn’t buy happiness is very true, but being happy is actually something you can control.
  • A few things that can make you happy are being present, being in flow, being grateful, and building and maintaining relationships.

The Longevity Challenge

Key Takeaways

  • Longevity is now one of the biggest challenges facing those who are retiring today with life expectancies creeping up in to the 120 to 160 year range.
  • You want to enjoy life to the fullest in retirement, but you may need to make some changes to ensure you will not run out of money.
  • You may need to consolidate debt, take care of your health, or do some research to figure out what it is you want to do with your time during retirement in order to better prepare yourself for a long-term retirement.

Start Off the New Year with Simplicity

Key Takeaways

  • When life becomes very complex, it’s hard to simplify anything, which can cause frustration and a feeling of getting nowhere.
  • Instead of a New Year’s resolution, focus on your biggest frustration and figure out how to bring it from a complex state, to its most simple form.
  • Use a company or service, or turn to family and friends, to help you simplify a complex frustration you have.

Ring in the New Year

2017 is coming to an end and I find myself reflecting on everything that has happened over the past year. I am also looking into 2018 and planning it out: vacations, family events, major purchases, work seminars, etc. You may be doing the very same thing. Well, CNN had some thoughts about the future as well and put together the 18 Things to Look Forward to in 2018. It is very interesting to see what will be coming over the next year.

From all of us here at Coyle Financial Counsel, we wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Until next year, enjoy!
