Keep your goals as aspirational or concrete as desired. Ask the big, basic questions about your career and your life. And don't forget to consider the future of your family.
Learning about your retirement plan, compensation benefits, earnings and investments will help you optimize them and leverage them later on. You should take stock of your liabilities, as well.
Incorporate realistic projections for your income and expenses, the possibility of inflation, potential health care costs and other future factors that may force your plan to evolve over time.
