Re: Longevity discussion

That is a very provocative study. It seems to indicate that people without the will to retire early really do not want to be retired. So when they really retire they don't live very long.

In my case, I took early retirment from Megacorp at 49 because I had much to do. I did not really retire until ten years later. But phenomenon that would not show up in the statistics at Boeing either.

That's funny, the last time Boeing retirement data was quoted on this forum was to "prove" that ERs die younger.

The most precious, creative and innovative period in your life is the 10-year period around the age of 32. Plan your career path to use this precious 10-year period wisely and effectively to produce your greatest achievements in your life.
What a coincidence. That's just about the time that I left sea duty, started a family, switched my career to training commands, and capped it all off with an ER.

Gosh, he must be right!

Retirement vs Longevity
A 2002 article by Sing Lin, Ph.D. titled "Optimum Strategies for Creativity and Longevity" (See: http://www.seeya-downtheroad.com/Inf...tireYoung.html) reported that people who retired later died at a younger age. It was based on data from a Boeing study.
In a later paper he reports that the old Boeing data (may be 20 yrs. old) was flawed and sights a 2001 Sandia Labs study which shows that there is no clear influence of age of retirement on life span for age of retirement below 65.

Re: Longevity discussion

I hope genes don't matter.

Great granddad died at 105, grand father died at 85, dad died at 55. If the progession holds, I'm already dead.

Re: Longevity discussion

I think that part of the problem is that we'll never be able to accurately gauge all the things that we've been exposed to in life, like radiation, or toxic chemicals. Who knows if their fridge has been working improperly for years, & leaking something harmful into their home? Or maybe a neighboor is carelessly spraying some kind of plant-killer & contaminating YOUR yard, that your kids run barefoot though? There are just so many variables...
