Official retirement age is going higher and higher, faster then the speeding bullet.
Face it! We may never be fully retired till we officially retired from this world. (Even so you may still need to work at the place you are going depend on your God)
So we should start thinking what actually is retirement.
Let say if I retired tomorrow, what I will I like to do then?
After some thinking, I listed below some of the things I would like to do:
1. Spend more time with family or pet.
2. Pick up some new hobbies.
3. Travel the world.
4. Watch Movie / Surf net / Hiking.
But hey! Actually we can start doing these things now and don’t have to wait for our retirement.
There is not point of “working towards your retirement” anymore. No point working long hours ignoring whom and what is around you daily. Simply your retirement may never come and if when you are rich at say 65, you may not be healthy enough to do the things you like.
We can never know when we are going to die, but we can, at least to some extend, control how we live.
So think of what you like to do when you retired and start doing some of them, if not all of them, from today onwards.
