I really like my job, but I still can't wait to retire. I've been working for 30+ years, and I'm tired of the daily grind.Well this kind of sums it up, doesn't it?I voted that I dislike my (current) job. It's not a bad job, and the people aren't bad either (although I work from home). There are some annoying aspects of working for a large company and being a "cog in the machine". But really, it's the requirement that I spend 40+ hours a week doing it that is the problem!I have a lot of interests and a lot of other constraints on my time (family, house stuff). My weekdays are hectic because of this - fitting in work, childcare, dinner prep, etc. Time spent on my hobbies and interests is woefully lacking.This is why the advice that "if you don't like your job, just go get a different one" is not really helpful. That other job would ALSO require me to work 40+ hours a week.Hence my interest in FIRE. I'm well on my way to an early retirement and it feels great.-progmtl.
