For the past seven or eight years I have kept an envelope in my desk at work. It contained a sheet of paper with the date -
June 1, 2013 - on it.
I had planned for today to be the first day of my retirement.
But life intervenes. Companies close and people lose their jobs. The market crashes and people lose their retirement funds. Things change and you have to be flexible.
There's a new envelope in my desk today.
September 1, 2015.
Keep your fingers crossed!
