Thanks for the great post! And you are right that retiring early doesn't mean not working, just not being shackled to a paycheck. I plan on "retiring" in three years at the age of 26 by becoming a teacher. I know the hours are awful. my mother-in-law and most of my family are teachers, so I see the long hours; but I will be doing the work because I love it, not for the paycheck. That to me is the essense of "retiring." One doesn't need the job, but does something it because of desire.
