Die faster if we retire earlier or die faster if we work harder?

Monday, October 22, 2018

Reader says...
This week my boss say should not retire early as based on some studies, people who retire early then to die early as well.

Reason being they have nothing to keep them going & occupied.

He quote an example of a colleague who at 70s still working etc

Er….is that a reason why you should not retire I wonder???






No one ask you to do nothing at retirement.

Is just that you must have passive income to have a choice

If you want to work by choice is fine.

Really sad if you work because no choice

I feel like telling him Warren Buffett say if you don make $ when you are sleeping, you will work till you die





AK says...
You have cracked the code. ๐Ÿ˜€

It is all about having choices in life.

Hmm.

Die faster if we retire earlier or die faster if we work harder?

Alamak.

Not that kind of questions lah.






Working shouldn't be like being forced to do National Service.

Work because we want to and not because we need to.

If you can do that and your boss cannot, you win. ๐Ÿ˜€

Unquote.


People who propagate that workers should work till they die are the ones who reap benefits/profits from those who continue working. And they fear their benefits/profits would disappear into thin air when workers retire.

Saying that retirees will die of boredom is so absurd ่’ๅ” that in my opinion, the only other more preposterous thing I`ve heard in my life is the existence of heavenly beings.

just joking from a Hongkie far away, mind your words saying NS is forced to. I believe the government prefers to hear it is a kind of obligation. :)

Hi Laurence,

Capitalism is always about exploitation. ;)

AK71 said...

Hi Shiva,

OK, from today, "NS" shall be known as "NO".

NO, daddy, I don't want to go!

A thousand times, NO!

Alamak. ;p

Shiva said...

on the contrary, i think the government will swap the letters to ON.

ON your mark, son!

naughty you, papa is gonna beat your as....s

When I saw the article below, it reminded me of your blog. I was thinking if this senior manager is financially free, meaning he can choose to work or not to work, he won't be so mentally tormented. Simply report the case and resign the following day.

Hi betta man,

All of us want to be happy and having the freedom to choose whether we want to work or not can only be a good thing. :)

Some must understand his role a d responsibly if chose to work in security industry. It is a call of duty to do his job regardless of problem . If not then stay out of this industry.

Well, actually almost most of us can have the freedom to choose to work or not as long as being financially free. While being in this status is not a dream but just a path through knowledge, planning and discipline only. For those whom do not achieve this state mostly because they do not have the determination and most of all, the action to make the first step. Many people just dream how nice to be a rich man but in fact never do anything that makes a man rich. sadly.

Hi Shiva,

Very sad but very true.
