In a world where moving jobs is an accepted part of the working lives of many people, the idea of planning for the future can seem like something that is fine to put off for a later day. In the past, when 'a job for life' was the norm for a great proportion of the working population, the idea of rising up through the ranks in one organization and then taking a pension at the end of your career pretty much had things covered. Today, the job market is a more uncertain world and people are much more likely to pick, choose, and swap between jobs in their lifetime. This can mean that keeping an eye on the future is more difficult and needs a little more attention.
