Hey Guys do you really want to work till your 80 years of age? I am speaking for myself when I say heck no, granted I will always do something as I age. But I foresee I’ll focus on working for myself as I age, and not for others. If people want or desire to work that long for others, it must be something they truly enjoy which equates to happiness. I provided an article below that states very convincing evidence, why those people like working so much and will continue way past their 70’s. Working till your 80 years of age is this the new Norm?
To me it seems like they don’t have enough hobbies to pass the time. If they really enjoyed working for their organizations and it wasn’t about the pay, would they do it for free? That is the million dollar question that was mistakenly not asked by the interviewees in the article below. It seems sad that one of them is working so much that she regrets not spending enough time with her grandchildren. Now that is a travesty for her and the bonding time her grandchild might need today. This is a judgment free zone, but she is clearly showing signs of regretting her work / life balance. If I could say anything to her I would say work part time, and go spend some time showing those kiddies some grandma fun filled activities.
