Do You See The Big Picture Or The Little Retirement Pixel?
In the language of technology, a pixel is a single dot that makes up part of an image. When you look at your financial future, do you look at the whole picture or do you just look at a retirement pixel - one small dot that's a part of your retirement plan?
We hope that you take the time to look at more than just a retirement pixel. We hope that you?ll look at the whole picture , your savings, your investments, what you're doing now and what you'll do in the future.
What information can you get from looking at a retirement pixel? Maybe you'll see an interest rate. Maybe you'll see one mutual fund. Or you'll see a single share of stock. Perhaps you'll see one deposit into your IRA.
But when you take each retirement pixel and add them to the big picture, or to your retirement, what do you see? Does each retirement pixel fit the same picture?
What we mean to say is does every small dot of your retirement plan add up and contribute to the same image?
Do the stocks, bonds and mutual funds that you've invested in work well together, all building a strong foundation for your retirement income? Or do the gains of one merely balance out the losses of another?
Are the investments that you've made going to perform as well over time as they've performed in the past? Will the interest that your savings and investments accrue be enough to allow them to have a steady value even under conditions of inflation? Or will they fall flat over time?
Even though it is important to look at all of the pieces when you plan for your retirement, it's important to not lose sight of the big picture.
And that means that you need to make an effort to understand how all of your retirement pixels work together. It means doing your research or having it done for you.

Even more importantly, you'll be able to evaluate which small changes you can make to your investment strategy that will bring the picture into clearer focus.
