I'm a first time reader who recently stumbled across this post. I absolutely love the blog! Boredom (not lack of money) is the thing to fear in retirement. The deferred life plan just doesn't resonate with me...

Thanks for the comment and for sharing your thoughts.

I like your phrasing of "the deferred life plan." It is true and tragic than most people defer life to earn more money.

I hope to hear from you again...



I just came over from your excellent post on Get Rich Slowly. To this I must say, hear hear! I am much more afraid of being unable to work than I am of working until I die. I just commented over on GRS that I am financially free now, in my job, and would be happy to continue so indefinitely, or until such time as a BETTER opportunity comes along.

Thanks for coming over from GRS! You are wise to fear only being unable to work, especially if the work provides meaning; because without meaning to live for, we just deteriorate.

This is why the fear of "being forced to work" is a misplaced fear. One should only fear a lack of meaning, which is most often found in some kind of service to others.

Thanks again for commenting...


This one article alone shows off your excellent writing skills. I am very impressed with your views and interesting content. I hope you intend to continue writing more informational articles.

The true cost can be estimated on the percentage of the remaining paydays of our career. For my part, it is still good for 30 plus years.
