Almost every ad you see or article you read treats retirement like it’s a date on the calendar. What’s your “number?” When do you want to retire? At what age can you start collecting Social Security? It’s worth remembering that retirement is not a date, but a phase of life. It’s a path you walk down, not a door you walk through. Stop planning for a day and start planning for a decade. Or two. Or three.
