I am 53 so I am approaching that age where early retirement begins to look good. I have read much and discussed it with many retirees, and the consensus seems to be 1)retire from work so you can start another, more disired second career; or 2)dive into a hobby you want to get more involved in. Those that do not remain active in something are usually unhappy and live a shorted time than those that are active in some activity they like.

Whether it is a second careen you have always wanted, or getting almost professional at what has been a hobby, or becomming involved in various activities in your community; you need a reason to get up in the morning and goals to accomplish. If you do not plan this as carefully as you plan you finances, you will be very disappointed in your retirement.
