We’ve weathered a lot of unexpected changes recently. With over 50% of employed Americans working from home according to Zapier.com, embracing the shift in our day-to-day, maintaining relationships, or even confronting an unexpected scarcity of paper goods can feel like a lot to handle.
Change is difficult to predict, especially during a pandemic. But if you could gaze into the future, what would your retirement look like after the events of last year? Will you use your newfound video chatting skills to stay in touch with family and friends? Will you build a legacy with the cash you saved on travel costs this year? Will the events you’ve experienced teach you to be more frugal, creative, or active?
If you’ve been saving for retirement, changes like we’ve encountered lately can feel a little scary. But if you lean into the opportunities that come your way, your future self may just wind up being more prepared, more skilled and maybe even more confident than before.
