I am 32. Retiring early for my generation may very well mean retiring at age 75. What if medical advances in the next 20 years pushes average life expectancy into the 100's?

Anyway, I will not have any plans to retire early if continue to enjoy my work and work continues to give my family and I the flexibility to do the things that I love. When I am ready to settle down and travel the world I will still not consider myself retired. There will always be active endevours and initiatives rolling behind the scenes.

Talk to me in 10 years and maybe I will not sound so optimistic? Nope...life at any stage should be focused on enhancment, not retirement.

Tom
