WDP — Career Planning

Daily writing prompt
What is your career plan?

As I look back on my working years, my goal was to have a career in a field of interest to me, to work in roles that were fulfilling, and to hold positions where I looked forward to going to work every day.

Blah, blah, blah.

My real career plan was to retire after having built a nest egg with enough money accumulated in my retirement savings accounts to be sure that I could live comfortably in retirement and wouldn’t outlive my money.

I retired in 2016 and I’m proud to say that, short of some unexpected catastrophic expense or occurrence, or me living to about 120 years, I will have achieved my career plan.

    It’s good to have planned for that. Some people still don’t want to think about it… and some can’t. That was somewhat understandable a few decades ago, shortly after pensions started disappearing.

    My career plan was always to work fewer hours and get paid more – which meant taking every available training class.

    That’s good to know. Money becomes very important as we stop working.
