So what can you do today to make a difference down the road? When it comes to saving for retirement, we think there are three main things to think about.

You control time and money. And while you may think you have little control over the return, you actually control more than you think. You control the "how," or how you have your money invested. That's because how much you have in cash or fixed income versus growth investments can greatly affect your return potential. Use our investment calculator to see the impact a few changes to your savings plan can make.
One simple way to incorporate investing into everyday life is through systematic investing. For example, by automatically investing a set amount of money each month into an individual retirement account at Edward Jones, you can help make sure you're putting as much money away as you can. This may help you reach retirement even sooner.
