The markets have done great lately, but there will inevitably come a time when fear returns and indexes drop.  After all, that is the nature of markets.

While we can’t control the ups and downs, we can control things like how much we’re saving, how our assets are allocated and  how much debt we have.  Focus on those things and you’ll be less likely to stress about swings in the market.  You’ll be able to keep calm and retire on.

Just for fun I had my designer put together a little reminder for you (hat tip to the famous “Keep Calm” poster from World War II).  You can download it here: Keep Calm Poster

Have a great weekend!
