“My dad used to have a big keyring dangling from his pants. On it were all the keys that he felt were necessary to carry with him every day. I can still remember him running out the door to answer the volunteer fire alarm and hearing those keys clanging on his way out the door. His belief was that he needed to always carry all of his keys so he never lost one or forgot one.
It was thinking about that clanging bulky keyring that made me consider that all retirees need to possess similar multiple keys to ensure their own safety in retirement. This has less to do with the fact that when we retire, we may forget where we place things. Rather it has everything to do with the fact that in retirement, life will be wonderful, but life will also come with its challenges. We all have the opportunity to live a wonderful and safe retirement. I believe that our ability to do this will depend on our discipline in maintaining a keyring that contains these Four Keys as we proceed through our retirement:
This book will explore all four of these keys in depth and provide you the reasons why they are important and a game plan that will allow you to effectively address what is needed to ensure success in each of these areas.”
