Very much so, extremely focused on that. It's more like a 5-8 year plan.

I have a plan to have my student loans paid off in 5 years. Just in time to start paying for my son's education.

Having no plan IS a plan to be at the mercy of events.

I have had a five year plan since 30. I just paid off my house have my retirement fully funded and retire next year. The primary parts of the plan now are travel and health related.

Gotta have a plan.

Unbelievable. I've scanned down through these and only #Fanburger understands the importance of this. #GypsyofNewSpain at least asked a logical question.

It is vital to have a 5, 10. and 20 year plan for investing. A 5-year plan for career is the minimum requirement. A 5, 10 and 20 year plan for health is wise.

People who don't have a 5-year plan often end up begging favors from people who do.

I see people make plans all the time... then shit happens that makes their plans impossible.

My plan
Make sure I have more money coming in than going out.

My life is very simple, uncomplicated and I seldom experience stress. Unlike all those persons who make plans...

Stress can be addicting

Health insurance? Fire insurance? Retirement plan? Rainy day fund? Accomplishing major goals? Health?

I was thinking something along the lines of 60 months. That sounds like a good plan to me.

Sounds overdone. 5 years is more obtainable : )

I don't have a 5 year plan, but I do have a day to day plan.
And that is learn something new every day, and do what I can to help others.

That's a fool's errand in my view. No one sees very clearly even a year ahead these days. I try to anticipate trends further out but I think making an actual plan that far in advance is being too rigid.

I have been retired for over 23 year and live one day at a time. I do plan for some travel and camping experiences but rarely more than 1 month in advance.

Yes...in fact, I have a chart where I keep short-term through long-term goals and I update it monthly as things progress to account for variables an unseen changes. Everyone needs a roadmap to follow or they are just wandering aimlessly.

I was going to say the exact same thing! More like hope than plan though... ha

Well, sort of... The plan is to be retired from the current job and then to know where I'll be moving, somewhere away from rural GA

My 5 year plan is to hang on until I can get on Medicare if it is still out there, and then coast until I can retire.

I'm currently living my last 5 year plan. My new 5 year plan is to own a boat. Best part is that I'll be 41yo in 5 years, so everyone will think it's a midlife crisis.
