Can I really retire
I am 43 and I hate the pressure of my job. I calculate that if I average spending $30,000 per year over the next 15 years, I will then be depleted of my liquid assets and current retirement (don't care about the 10% penalty) money. Also I already have a home paid off which I can sell in 15 or so years and move to a cheaper area. Also note I am single and my lifetime partner and I do not have kids and won't have that major expense.
Realistically do I ever have to work again or at least am I at the point where I can simply go independent in my field or really try to find something I love where money is not an issue.
In addition what are good ways to spend the time. Of course I would do even more volunteer work to further give back to society as well as more exercise but what other ideas do you have on this.
