Small world! Uncle8888 bumped into his ex---ex boss of his younger days; he has retired at 58. We chatted for a while. What he said got Uncle8888 thinking too. He said when we can retire earlier it is blessing as not many people can afford to retire due to their lifestyle. Why retire as early as possible? When we reach our 50s; we have entered into the Autumn of our life. There is not much time left to explore other aspects of our life - our life is definitely NOT all about our job. Our job will take away too much of our time!
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.
