I know that I’m only 31 (now you know) but a mini-retirement would be awesome right now.
Is that crazy idea?
Not according to Tim Ferriss, the author of “The 4-Hour Work Week”.
He suggests that we take mini-retirements instead of one long retirement at the end of our life. That makes total sense to me.
Why do we spend an entire life working 40+ hours a week, hoping to have a blissful time when we get old? Not smart, not smart at all.
When we are old, we will not have the energy and the braveness to the things that we’re willing to do today. If I could, I would travel the world, explore cities and get to know different cultures around the world. I don’t think I will do that when I’m 70 and my bladder tells me to go for a wee every 10 minutes. Now is the time, now is the perfect time for a mini-retirement.
In my opinion, we should live one day at a time. We should enjoy every second of our lives, create memories and have fun while we can. I have visited a few countries but there are so many that I’d like to see before I die. I need to make all these trips throughout my life, not in the last five years of it. A plan would be nice.
