Investment goals

When I was looking for investment options, I was wondering what my investment goal was. Primarily, I want to lead a safe post retirement life and to get a pension on a monthly basis.

But investment options and goals vary people to people. What are yours? How did you invest to align it to your requirements?

My goals were fullfilled by my employer. I retired as a grade 7* civil servant at 60 on max pension of 50% of my best year taken from my best year of the previous 5; I am now 77. I also add by occassional freelance work for a London media & publishing group. The rest of my retirement income comes from property rentals which were purchased throught my working life. . . . now taxation is a different matter and at times I feel as though I am seen as a a sitting target cash cow!

My goals for investments eventually, is to raise up enough in savings, to finally take out a couple of good yield bonds. Still working on it, but I am getting there. :)
