I read of a blog which mentioned that one is closer to retirement than he/she think. I agree with this statement. This is because most of the people believe that retirement refers to doing nothing. This is not the exact reason for retirement. Retirement gives one an option to do the things he/she want to do and enjoy doing. If one happen to be doing the things (which he/she likes) as part of his/her work, I believe that this is the best of the two world.
