great post from an early retiree, on the expected and the unexpected
Write a list of everything you’ll do when you retire – and then start doing some of those things right away instead.
I believe that the best cure for Early Retirement Obsession is to start acting more like a retired person right now. The further you can push your boundaries out of the current comfort (or discomfort) zone, and into the life you envision for yourself as a retired person, the more you’ll start changing into the futuristic person you want to be. And share your thoughts and questions with all of us as you go along.
