9. Emotions of Retirement – Are You Ready? -

Ray’s Take: How prepared are you for the emotional side of retirement?

Most of us see retirement planning as a quantitative exercise to be as certain as we can that the financial aspects are in good order. Everything else we tend to see through rose-colored glasses, envisioning it as a time when we are free to do the things we’ve been putting on hold for years. But there’s another side to retirement that few fully think through in advance.
