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
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?I am 31, DH is 42. DH and I plan on retiring within 5-7 years. I think enhancing your life is a good idea, but I personally don't like living in a cubicle from 8-5. Nor do I like having only 2-3 weeks off a year. I'll take retirement any day. IMHO, work does not give me any flexibility- it just takes up my time.
life at any stage should be focused on enhancment, not retirement.It probably depends on how you define retirement.
Actually I kinda like "enhanced retirement". I just have to figure out what that is.
