So far based from Uncle8888's reading into many books on retirement ... One possible reason why many of us fear retirement and many more HNWIs continue to work even they can retire anytime from their full-time job.
These people are likely to have Achievement-oriented personality.
They can't live without any sense of achievement in their life. As retirees; it is so hard to maintain that sense of achievement without career, business or corporate activities to boost up.
So Uncle8888 understands this!
For the initial year in his retirement, Uncle8888 has set for himself along this path to have sense of some achievement but not in career or business.
It will be some achievement for personal well being and fitness. With more free time, he should get fitter and maintaining fitness and may be he can become role model for other senior citizens or retirees who are "Italy".
Senior citizen are older but NOT necessary weaker!
This blog on Short-term trading and Long-term investing may have inspired you to take charge of your personal finance and investment to reach the edge of financial independence since Nov 2006.
The next chapter of this blog will aim to inspire other retirees and senior citizens to take charge of their own fitness and be fitter.
No "Italy"! No excuse!
Uncle8888 also loves to eat and in fact he lives to eat and NOT eat to live! The only period he has to eat to live was those many months after his cancer treatment when every meal was an oat meal with Ensure drink!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
