1. Best to you with your early retirement plans. I “retired” at 44 and highly recommend it. You mention being available to family as one of the other things you’d like to do. I second that! Over the past 10 years, I’ve been able to spend weeks and even months helping family and friends at various times.

    As for you statement, “…belief that their organizations cannot run without them.” Sadly, very true. A wise boss told me early in my working life that everyone is replaceable. She was right.

  2. I agree with all of your reasons for retiring early. I have a lot of things I want to do and don’t want to wait until I am 65 to do them. Who knows if I will have my health at that point in my life.

  3. I had a health scare last week – this week I have a plan for early retirement.

    I simply don’t want to not be healthy enough to enjoy the years I will be retired.

    And off the back of the plan – I have taken action
