>> To paraphrase some people's approach: "I really enjoy doing XYZ and find it rewarding, but you can't make much much money at it, so I'd have to work 45 years before I could 'retire.' Instead, I'll work 35 years at a higher-paying job I hate, so I can retire and then volunteer at XYZ for ten years." <<

Right. Or maybe even work for 25-30 years at something they don't like, and spend the next 15-20 doing XYZ for low pay. That's closer to the track I'm looking at.
