The biggest mistakes one can make is not to start retirement planning and saving/investing early in life, and to be consistent(save with every paycheck), take advantage of any employer matching plan, max out contributions when possible, eliminate debt, avoid risks with your nest egg, plan for multiple streams of income once retired (social security, pensions, dividends, part time work, etc.) and make catch up contributions once you reach 50.. I use several sites including the site Retirement And Good Living which provides information on finances, health, retirement locations, part time work and also has a great blog of guest posts about a variety of retirement topics.

Pay yourself first is the first step to saving. I also suggest that the key component to everyone's retirement/estate plan should include life insurance.
