Chipsboss made the following post, which might be the beginning of a list of things to do if your want to delay your retirement. Does anyone have any additional items to include?

<<Further tips for retiring early:

• If you're married, stay that way.
• If you're not married, stay that way.
• If you're childless, stay that way. See the Fool board on choosing not to have children.
• If you have children, make them become independent, self-supporting adults and plan on delaying your FIRE.
• If you think you have the time, skill, computer power, knowledge and insight to beat the market consistently, reconsider. Be sure to include management fees, trading and research costs, the value of your time and capital gains taxes. See the Fool board on index fund investing and study up on efficient market theory.
• Plan your retirement expecting no inheritance.
• Inherit anyway.
• When you get advice from faceless strangers on the internet, look for some verification before you depend on it.
