Well, I have not. So why don't you give us a little synopsis of what he has said?

Why is that sad? The whole point of being in the capital growth mode of your investing career for many of us is so that you can enjoy retirement with all the money you earned/saved/invested. Do I look sad?

I feel sad for those still in the growth phase. Like that old saying "If I knew being a Grandparent was so much fun, I would have done that first!"

Regardless, many/most of us know people in the accumulation phase, so we still think in those terms in order to help them out if we can. My SIL has asked on several occasions "OK, so how do I retire early?". he already knows the answers are boring!
