"My observation is that a lot of people who think they will be happy with a long worklife change and discover that work becomes increasingly burdensome. It helps to have the savings to make a choice freely"Well said Seattle Pioneer.But there are also those who dream of being retired with free time on the hands to allow them to pursue whatever their hearts desire. Some of them realize when they retire, that retirement is not all its cracked up to be.Work can be a source of pride, a fun thing to do, and a great social experience after you work side by side with people who become almost like family.Retirement can be quite a come down. That is why some do it in stages. Work part time for a while. Or even go back to work after retiring for a while.To each his own.Fooldom seems to focus mostly on making retirement financially possible. But putting some time into the psych aspects can also be a good idea. Get ready to retire before you pull the switch.
