Darrow Kirkpatrick seems to be living the dream. He retired in Tennessee with his wife Caroline at age 50. No, he's not a dot-com millionaire or a real-estate flipper or even a stock trader. He's a planner.
"I did it the traditional way—hard work, frugality, prudent investing, and patience," says Kirkpatrick, a former software engineer.
If you're in your 20s, retirement seems ages away. But financial professionals and the recently retired have some good and bad news for you: It's not. E. Todd Marquardt, a certified financial planner in Madison, Wis., says very few people in their 20s, and even their 30s, are socking away enough funds for a happy retirement.
People are living longer while health-care costs are rising faster than inflation. It's easy to see why 20-year-olds need to start thinking about their future—now. While some feel that putting aside $100 a month is insignificant, it can go a long way especially for those in their 20s.
"Timing the market is not a strategy," Marquardt says. "It's time in the market and the power of compounding that is a strategy that works."
To ensure a successful retirement, Ilene Davis, a financial planner in Cocoa, Fla., recommends learning the difference between needs and wants right now. "Keeping up with the Joneses" is not a good for your checkbook, or your future.
"Wants can kill your ability to retire," says Davis. "The easiest way to remain poor is to pretend to be rich."
