What do you fear about retirement?

A Letter about The World's Second Best Retirement Gift - One of Three Retirement Gifts by Ernie Zelinski

I received the following e-mail about The Joy of Not Working from Ye Xianlong, a Singapore resident, today (April 28, 2008):




    Hi Ernie,

    I enjoyed your The Joy of Not Working.

    Rat race is more damaging than ever. Like cancer eating away at fabric of society. Technology is suppose to let us have more leisure time but it did the opposite for many people.

    Work epidemic that you mention has infected Singapore a great deal.

    http://www.nationalfamilycelebrations.sg

    Here the government launched family day out. Too many people are working long hours & sacrificing family.

    Some of reasons are:

      - increasing foreign workers competition
      - foreign workers have no family & friends so long hours; locals struggle
      or get fired
      - rising costs of living
      - keeping up with the joneses
      - increasing workload (cost cutting)
      - instant stress (people expecting instant replies to cellphone msg,
      blueberries etc)
      - increasing information overload

    Thanks for your unorthodox books.

    Less clutter,
    Xianlong
    Singapore
