People are scared of retiring. Why? Because they think that they’re going to get bored and lose their sense of being. They’re so used to being waken up by an alarm clock and having a purpose: taking a shower, eating, going to work for 9+ hours, going back home, decompressing, eating, chores, sleep and doing it all over again.
The cyclical nature of our working lives becomes a habit, which becomes harder to break. I think that’s why people have a hard time going back to their routine of working when they go back from vacation: their entire cycle has been broken.
But what if you break it for good? What if you have enough money generating more money for you that you don’t have to succumb yourself to that cycle? What if you’re free? Then what would you do?
