Compressed time
 
"I can't wait until I retire," I heard him say. "Only 10 more years in this place..."

:beer:

(I'm enjoying my years cycling, right now! :thumbup: )

Ah yes, the greatest irony in life, no doubt. "I can wait until I retire", then when he/she retires "I wish I was 30 again".

Don't "wait" for anything. Do it now when you can. Recently, I have seen too many situations of rather severe medical problems causing an inability to do what you waited to do when retired.

Do it now.

Last week, one of the big bosses at work died of a heart attack at the age of 52.

I wonder what he had been waiting to do?

52 is incredibly young.

Only a year younger than my grandfather was. He was waiting to retire, too.

Simple solution: Retire at 30.

Retirement is a thing of the mind...

I say, retire from the "rat race," but stay involved in life-giving things until the last minute!

I don't regret retiring at 59 (December '99)--I only wish I could have retired at, oh, say, nineteen....
