You are not alone if you are in your 60s or 70s and have no urgent plans to retire. In reality, you are in decent company. Warren Buffett, at age 92, is still recognized as one of the most brilliant minds in finance. Jane Fonda, at 85, is as active as ever as an actor and campaigner. Bob Iger has just resumed his position as Disney’s CEO at 72. In her recent victory speech at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Jamie Lee Curtis stated, she is 64 years old, and this was amazing.
In many ways, retiring in the modern day is more like work than it is rest. What is the dissimilarity? Those in retirement no longer have to adhere to the schedules of their former employers or the norms of society if they choose to continue working. Many recent retirees report wanting to work “a bit” during their golden years.
