Retirement - It's a Little Too Late for the Wild


Here is the latest e-mail that I received from a reader of How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free who is obviously happily retired.

    Hi Ernie,

    I have just retired (aged 65) and I'm reading your book, How to Retire Happy, Wild and Free.

    I'll go along with the happy and free but it's a bit late for the "wild." I find your book informative and stimulating.

    Advantage of retiring at 65; Most of the people that I owe apologies to are all dead.
    Disadvantages; I now have to read the newspapers on my own time.

    I didn't take my job, as an Inspector with a transport company, very seriously so there was no trauma on retirement.

    Keep up the good work,
    Mattie L.
Here are few prosperity quotes and quotes about retirement to keep the concept of retiring happy, wild, and free in proper perspective.

    If you would like the world to be happier and more prosperous, then help add just one person who is happier and more prosperous. That one person should, by the way, be YOU.

    Careers;
    Money;
    Possessions;
    And Pets are all okay in their little own ways.
    But, flat out . . . . . GREAT FRIENDS ROCK !
