There are instances in which one informs his/her co-workers that he/she is quitting the full-time employment for good. The co-workers will usually ask the details of the plan after the full-time employment. When one indicates that there is no concrete plan at the very moment, the co-workers will usually indicate that one will be bored and he/she will regret the decision to quit the full-time employment. I do not know whether such comments made by the co-workers are meant for the individual’s well-being or out of jealousy. I am of view that there is no need for the co-worker to make such comment on the individual’s decision to quit from the full-time employment.
I always believe that one will have considered all angles before making the decision to quit the full-time employment. If I were one of the co-workers, I will wish him/her all the best in his/her early retirement endeavour. This is absolutely a great decision for the individual to make and I admire his/her courage in making this dream a reality.
I have read a blog which assumed that an individual will live up to the age of 80. I am 40 this year. This will mean that I have about 40 years left in this planet with the assumption that I have a lifespan of 80 years. There is no way to reverse the time and I can look forward and make the decision of retiring at the possible young age going forward.
Looking forward is the way to go and I adopt such approach.
