In the past, many people stayed at one job, or at least one company, for almost their entire working lives. When they retired, they could typically count on a pension, the value of which was based on their years of service and earnings.

Just as with other things we do, it often seems as though once we feel we’ve got a handle on the fundamentals it’s easy to forget the simple things that got us started and instead chase after newer, more complicated ideas.
