I have absolutely no intention of ever working again, we travel 3 months a year, have sufficient pensions to be ok, and as many have said, people get ill and die early, enjoy what ‘well’ years you can. You won’t be lying on your death bed thinking about the time you spent in the office!
When I went Part Time in 2016 age 38, some people accused me of being lazy and an under achiever.
The truth is, I had a couple of close friends that had died quite young and realised life was too short.
I wouldn’t call myself lazy, I’m a grafter when I’m at work. But I value my free-time over my work time.
I just don’t have the drive to work further up the food chain to gain a status which is of little interest to me.
It’s a fine balance between having to work and needing to work. I realised am happy owning less. Life experiences trump any sort of possession...
