I enjoyed your comments about retiring early. Human beings need I remind us all, are animals, and animals are creatures of habit. Too many people are caught up in that old infectious disease called the 'company mentality.' But you are absolutely right; the truth of the matter is that the only people that truly care about your well-being are our families and loved ones. Businesses place themselves first, but try to mask that intention behind an array of 'we care about our beloved employees' wall. We can all learn a lesson from your article, namely, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEEN REITREMENT AND WORK IS ONE'S DEPENDENCY UPON A PAYCHECK. When you don't need that paycheck anymore, for the first time in your life you own yourself.
