Day 186 — Why retire?

Wikipedia

The Intern. It’s about a retired guy who did everything in his life after work and can’t just sit and relax. Thus he started to work as an intern on a tech startup.

What’s the purpose of retiring? To relax? as this movie portrayed people who have a passion to continue learning like you and me can’t just not keep moving and learning. Even if we retire early at 50s we still want to work afterwards by then we’re a bit old and can’t do much of the things when we’re younger.

why not retire now?

take a break, enjoy life and live your dreams, if it fails keep you still have a lot.

Tim Ferris calls this mini-retirements. It’s not for everyone but I suggest you pick up his “4 hour workweek” and hopefully will inspire you too :)
