The lesson I learnt is a very simple one. "The younger years matter in more ways than one. Don't waste them."

I have learnt that it's important to do work that one ultimately enjoys while planning for retirement. Life in old age is affected by the choices we make in our youth.

For me, the greatest lesson I learned from the book is to plan for retirement especially since our life expectancy has increased well beyond 65. Also, that having a late life crisis is essential to creating a shift or turning point that can change our lives for the better. This is an interesting perspective that is quite deep and resonated with me.

What stood out while reading the book was why it was good to plan ahead and not wait till the last minute to do so. In life, we are planners, directly or indirectly. We are able to either plan our day in a more organized manner or go through life without any direction. The way we plan for the day is the direction it will take, consciously or unconsciously. To plan ahead financially for retirement  we need to be financially strong.
If you are having a bad day, let people see that you are having a good day...Spread good vibes, people are going through a lot already. :tiphat:

I learned that we have to take control of our lives while we still can. We shouldn't wait until retirement to start making plans for the future.

The most important thing I took away from this book was the importance of planning, especially when it comes to retirement. This is so that they can live happy lives after retirement.
