Does anyone ever feel guilty not working? Maybe there will be an age when this guilt thing will pass. For now I still work on. oldtrig
I am only 43 but would quit working tomorrow and never desire to do it again if I were financially able to do so. I certainly would not feel guilty about it! In fact, I would feel quite the opposite. I would likely be very proud and boastful about it!
In fact I often wonder why execs in my company who are in the 50's making a million plus per year are still working
Just a couple years at that income level and they shouldn't have to work again.
