John Maxwell Leadership Bible: (Proverbs 22:6)
God calls parents to lead their children. He tells them that if they train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it (Prov. 22.6). And just how does a parent become a good leader for a child? Partly by focusing on three key words:
It matters not whether you are young or old, there are many words of wisdom contained in the Book of Proverbs. Modeling. Management. Memories. Each of the words of the above lesson should be used as we live our lives and plan for our future.
In my profession I use each of these in dealing with clients in planning for their retirement developing models, managing those models, and using memories to accomplish the goals for retiring and remaining retired. It is exciting for my clients to look forward to retirement and the years spent in retirement. Each retirement plan is different and must meet the needs of the retiree.
A retiree faces many things upon retirement. Being able to remain comfortably retired and making provisions for any "bumps in the road" must be considered. In order to accomplish this there needs to be a great deal of flexibility, because circumstances change during the retirement years. The retiree is not the only one involved in these plans. The spouse must be considered as well as the final disposition of retirement funds after the life of the retiree. I could go on and on about all of the circumstances during those years. Because there are no "cookie cutter" plans that one fits all, it is necessary to design and manage a plan that will take care of each individuals goals and desires.
Have a great day!
