"I can see both sides of this: the desire to retire early can at times be very strong, but so can the desire to make a large, positive contribution to the world we live in."

For my part, I think the larger, more positive contribution will be made AFTER I retire. Right now, I have little time to work on the things that concern me - teaching adults to read, working with at-risk kids, which I will be able to do when I retire in 5 years.
