6. Keep mak­ing re­tire­ment con­tri­bu­tions.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Success -

Amid un­cer­tainty, this is hard to do, but if pos­si­ble, stick to your plan and keep putting money away. If you need to re­duce the amount due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances, try to at least cap­ture any com­pany match.

If you need money within a year or so, keep it in a safe place, such as a check­ing, sav­ings, money mar­ket or short­term CD or bond. Do not tempt fate by putting money that you know you will need at risk.

7. Man­age cash.

When we are fear­ful, we tend not to make the great­est de­ci­sions. So if some­one (a bro­ker, sales­man, etc.) pitches a brand new prod­uct, ei­ther when the bot­tom has fallen out or when mar­kets are reach­ing new highs, take time to eval­u­ate whether or not to take the plunge.

8. Be­ware the sales pitch.
