Calling all office drones: How does the prospect of retirement sound? You know: Powering through your bucket list, spending a ton of time with loved ones, and just generally living a laissez-faire daily existence. If that sounds just peachy, well, you might be in the in the minority. According to a recent survey conducted by Sun America, seven out of 10 people would rather work through their golden years than sit around with all that extra time on their hands.
As with any other big change in your life, there are subtle actions that you take that affect the outcome of that change—in this case, your actions can impact whether or not it’s time to retire. For example, if you haven’t yet given any thought to what your financial future will look like without a steady paycheck—or you would rather go to a job you hate than face any day spent toiling alone—perhaps retirement isn’t in the cards for you just yet. To know for sure, familiarize yourself with these subtle signs. You’ll instantly know if you’re ready for the golden pastures of all-day leisure—or need to spend a few more years in the daily grind.
