To me, retired means the work is just getting started, as you now have the ability to live your life the way you choose. The important question to answer is, what does it mean to you?
Whether it’s living a life of sunrises and sunsets on a secluded beach or owning your own business, you are the only one who knows what will fulfill and satisfy your desires.
My point is this, everyone has their own version of what it means to “make it”. Once you find out What yours is, the next step is simple. Do it.
