The modern workforce doesn’t require people to be in the office at all times, nor does it mean people have to work in the traditional temporal sense. Depending on your job, technology means you can work out of the office at your discretion, and there are plenty of odd jobs and freelance gigs that can get you saved up in no time. Why not pack it in early with cash saved? Why not just travel the world and do what you want to do instead of being tethered to The Man for the majority of your life?
There are also a ton of places within the U.S. that can perfectly accommodate those looking to retire early. Or you can just get a boat and sail the high seas for the rest of your life. Yeah—we’ll take the boat.
People know what it means to “retire,” right? That means not working at all, which means you’re not really making a set income. So, if you’re retiring early, you’ll have to live off the cash you have essentially up until you die. Do you really feel confident enough in your finances to do that? Because if not, you’ll basically be working odd jobs up until your expiration date.
Just because you’re working doesn’t mean you’re not living life—you can still travel and do everything else during non-work hours. Besides, working until you're 65 isn’t exactly a bad thing. In fact, it means you’re more secure in your life enough to really enjoy it. You’re over all the bull and can do as you please. And you can do it all with a senior citizens discount. Hollaaaaa!
