FIRE Is That Easy AS We Have Thought

Real People who have tried FIRE or manage to really FIRE!

Case 1Just after three weeks of retirement, he was back to work. Lucky his vacancy was not filled and he got back his old day job.

Read? You think it is so easy to retire early???

Case 2 : He took one year no pay leave; but after three months he gave up and went back to work.

Case 3 : He took one year no pay leave and finally he realized that working routinely is still better than having to find activities to pass time.

Case 4 : She took 6 months no pay leave and went back to work to fulfill the one month notice for retirement. During her 6 months no pay leave; she managed to find some other activities to pass time and survived the six months test.

Case 5 : Last chat with him seems that he has finally came to term with boring. No more irregular heart beats that his previous job gave him!

Read? "Early" Retirement??? (2)


  1. If you are NOT currently coasting in your job and finding it quite boring; you may find it harder to retire or FIRE.

    To transit from been very busy with many scheduled routines state to finding your own enough activities to past time is really tough.

  2. Yes lol, life is indeed strange and difficult to say.

    To be a BUM is also not easy one.

    1st can U take it mentally?

    Can not better go back to work lol.

    For many people no work means no meaning in living or life.

    It can even mean slow death for some.

    That's why a lot of "male-chicken to talk until some can not take it anymore.

    Want to talk male chicken some more?

    "Ai kong, wei si kong beh liu eh".

    "Li hu li kong, Wa hu wa kong".

    "Kong Song, Kong Song, Chu Ho Lah"

    Just for laugh but it also serious if U think properly.

    1. One thing that I observe is retirees read newspapers damn slowly

  3. Old already of course does a lot of things slower than usual.

    Read somewhere if an old folk walking pace slower than usual, means his days are numbered.

  4. i can think of at least one thing beneficial to old folks are things or matters in the past were big deals are no sweat anymore.

    Old folks because of experiences, can see clearer and better:-

    "What counts can’t always be counted; what can be counted doesn’t always count".
