Do you enjoy working or are you just longing for the day when you can retire? I had to retire because I was injured and I would really love to be able to go back to work. Many of my work mates actually envied me when I retired even though it was due to an injury. What do you think? Would you like to quit work now or do you enjoy it? Will you be a reluctant retiree or a jubilant one

of course I do enjoy working, I am still young and still starting to work, I am still more than a year working, so I still consider myself fresh I wish to retire by 50 years of age, I dont want to work until 60 years of age, so I would plan my career well to retire by this age

It is very wise to have a plan right from the beginning. I am glad you enjoy your work. You have obviously found you niche in life. That is really great.

yup I do enjoy working, my job here is not stressful but I am still actively looking for better payoffs, I love my job but if offered with much higher compensation, I would definitely take the opportunity since I dont want to work forever too

Yeah! As much as I enjoyed working I sure wouldn't do it for free. It's great when there is still money left at the end of your bills.

I like my job reasonably well, but I do think I will enjoy retirement as well. I don't think I will be reluctant nor jubilant, so much as looking forward to something different.

That is a really good attitude to work and retirement. Many paople are so focused on their work that they fail to prepare for retirement. You really need to start planning early, not just financially but also socially. If you don't, you feel pretty lost when you retire.

Ofcourse, with higher payroll,, hehe :P Oh well, that is life :D I still am glad that I am living well, problematic, yeah.. but that is part of life,, lol :P I still enjoy working,, and I will continue to do so until I fulfill what I am destine to do :D

It is great that you enjoy working. the stress really is a problem for a lot of people. In most workplaces there are not enough workers and too much work but if you can still get job satisfaction that is great. It does help to off set the stress.

Heck no. I hate to work. I work because I have to not because I want to. I'm sick of slaving for someone else and making other people rich. I hate the 9-5 rat race. I think whoever invented work needs to be dug up and shot. I'm trying to work from home so I will not have to go outside and work. I have not worked up to the point of being able to support myself just working from home yet but that is my goal. I want to enjoy my life and have the freedom to do what I want and not having my life controlled by an employer.

It must be terrible for you to be in a job you hate. I do hope you can make enough from home so you can leave your job. sometimes working for a boss is made more difficult because the boss is not good. I would like to hear how you go working from home. Since I had to retire I am also trying to work from home. So far I have made $2.22au. I hope you are doing better than me.
