while I agree that some occupations (due to their intensity and/or physical demands) need to be retired from (e.g. wrestling, flying a plane etc.), BUT:the idea of retirement itself is most appealing to folks who get paid to do what they don’t want to (employment) until they want out (retirement) or get kicked out (termination of appointment). #retirement is a myth

When was the last time you read about the retirement of a rock star? How about the retirement of an inventor? Until you start doing what you want to and can actually do, your boss remains god (if you’re lucky) or the devil (if you’re unlucky) & the next paycheck will be your source of inspiration. Remember that #retirement is a myth

Working in a place is not a bad idea so long as you love what you do, you can actually do it well, you’re contributing meaningfully to the organization and you’re gaining invaluable experience in your career. But remember, someone started the organization/business. Don’t plan to live your life out at a firm, plan to live your dreams cause #retirement is a myth
