Well, except it could keep you in the work place longer than need be. I plan to bail at age 56 with a comfortable amount of money. I figure if I work till 65, I would end up with about $3 million in a portfolio. I'd rather have less money and more time to travel and do something different then what I am doing now.

It's finding that balance in life that is the challenge.
