    I know what you are trying to say and I am not glorifying work by any means. I think it is very different depending on where you live. I live in Austria and my mom has to work until 63. Seeing that pensions are getting smaller and smaller, I'm estimating that I'll have to work until I am 70.

    It's probably different in the US, where whatever system is there is barely functioning. Or in Germany, where people who have worked their entire life have to survive on a minimum wage pension. I don't know how retirement works in Japan.

      Thomas, seriously, fuck the pension. The thought of it terrifies me and drives me in equal measure. We don't have to punch the clock until our teeth are falling out. It just requires a bit of strategic thinking and tenacity. Hustle!

        I can totally understand what you are saying. That is also what I mean by saying that I don't expect to get a pension anyway, so I have to make sure that whatever I am doing later in life is still doable for me.
