Not working and being able to travel and pursue my activities and some volunteering sounds great. Aging alone, as a single gay guy who never had a relationship, kind of scares me, especially once I hit old age and lose my parents.


Retired at 56 😊

And loving it.....


Planning on 60, hoping for 59(pension vesting) - 56 now


63. Five years to go.
Strange thing is I feel like I’m getting my second wind. Let’s see how long it lasts.








Am 55. Perhaps 60-62. I already feel exhausted from the unreasonable demands on my time from every direction. What do you think OP?

65-67. Depends how my portfolio looks at that time, as the past year performance definitely has set me back by 6-12 mo. Would consider transitioning to a part time role of some type earlier.

55 now. Will be 58 when I retire from the Army Reserve. Will be 70 when I retire overall.

58 or 59, when I know my youngest has enough to get thru college without more from me.

60. I’m ten years away and it suddenly seems frighteningly close.

Hmm. Either I need to cut out the RFID and put it on a keychain or one pair is staying in my bag for next three months.

Feeling like my life is racing by being on the road 20 years, and saddens me that when I get home tonight my SO leaves on a business trip.

Has anyone here ever tried negotiating “at will” employment terms in the US? I’m curious what specific terms folks have asked for and how the potential employer reacted.


My observation is that it is hard for consulting partners to land the quality public or private board roles everyone naturally targets. Despite there being a significant amount of exceptional talent that could be deployed, there is a big bias against consultants. Everyone wants “operators,” but I feel every board could also benefit from one current or former consulting partner. But sadly, that’s not the way the external world looks at things...

At what point does it not make sense to buy/ build a bigger home? My husband dislikes our house immensely (was his with former wife) and wants to move. Only owes $180k on it, we’ve been together 6 years and thus I’d rather just remodel. It’s the only thing we disagree about - moving or staying. He doesn’t want to invest one more cent in this house.


How many of you have had to curse out our Millennial/Gen-Y friends about calling us old and inept.

Anyone else have trouble separating who you are from what you do? I think a lot of our generation built our self identity around our work. If I take my work away, I'm not really sure who I am.
