Comments on: Do You Suffer from Just One More Year Syndrome? One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bryan Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 ARB,

That was quite the shocker hearing about my acquaintance passing away on a park bench the next day after have a cup of coffee with him. Those kind of events tend to bring out the YOLO attitude in me and suggest that I just get on with leaving work. I definitely want a lot of good years to be spent away from work on more enjoyable activities. My own parents health issues are great examples of why I should not keep putting off early retirement.

ARB, as resourceful as you are, I would be very surprised you have 30 more years before your retirement! Just get those other side hustles moving, as you have referred to in the past, and who knows what could develop. Believe me, the years go buy faster than you think. (I must be getting old because I used to hear people telling me that….and of course it did not register on my brain then) 🙂

I have moved to the digital age for sure with music. My music purchases all have been with iTunes for the last bunch of years. Now, if I can only find what to do with all these albums and cassettes I own. 🙂

Take care my friend.

I suffer right now from Just Thirty More Years Syndrome. If I could, I would walk right out of the bank and never come back, I’d do it.

But from what I’ve read on your blog, even before today, it doesn’t sound like you had such a case case of Just One More Year Syndrome. I mean, you had debt, expenses, and your wife’s pension date. I would almost say that retiring lady tear would have been a bad idea.

That said, for all the “What if THIS happens!?”‘s, the most powerful example of all is the man that was found dead on Tuesday. Do you want to risk waiting too long to enjoy financial freedom? To risk not having the time to enjoy your life? You can always make more money; what I’d something happens to you and you never got the chance to enjoy life because you were always putting things off for just one more year?

Great article, Bryan! And in pretty sure singers still make albums. But now you can buy songs individually for like $0.99. Or illegally download them off the Internet.
