Ha, been there done that 12 years ago. I'd rather jump on Ginza knifes or go back to work. Retire early does not mean retire early at any price. Besides, she pulls in a nice salary and wants to keep working.
My point is wealth or enough wealth is a perception that is on a relative scale. If we compare our nest egg to the folks with $5M, it is not enough. But how about if we compare to the rest of the planet? People all over the world live happy and meaningfully on much less.
Energy use is a good way to measure consumption.
If we consume 6X the energy of the average person on earth and it is still not enough. Something is not right.
