Life Cycle Remix

My buddy Edwin posted a very amusing email that he received about the life cycle. This email makes a good point, why can't life be all backwards so that we may retire and enjoy it. Sure, some people actually enjoy their retirement; however, let's look at the real picture here. Few people even make it to retirement, even fewer actually have enough money left over to even do something with their retirement. Even fewer are actually ABLE to enjoy their retirement AND money they saved up for it. So that leaves what? Maybe a fraction of the percentage of retirees actually enjoy it? Wow, this really ended up as a depressing blog post. Time to cheer up by reading that email: Edwin Soto’s Blog.
