Chris Guillebeau has an interesting blog called “The Art of Nonconformity”
Consistent with the site name , I found this post entitled How to Retire the Day After Tomorrow
He says that you can plan to retire in approximately 36 hours! Without doing anything drastic, of course!! 🙂 Hate drastic.
He goes on to admit, “Most of us will opt for partial retirement, and that’s because most of us are not working at jobs we completely hate. We just don’t like certain parts of them, and those tasks are what we need to retire from”.
To work out what you really want he suggests you ask yourself the following 5 questions:
Do I need retirement, or just a break?
Do I need a different job, or different circumstances?
Would it help if I could set my own hours?
What do I really enjoy doing at work?
What do I really hate doing at work?
Helpful, as retirement often isn’t the answer unless you are well-prepared and have something in your life to replace work.
