How about catching up w friends, spend quality time w parents, travel, learning something that you always wish to pick up but didnt hav the spare time etc etc.? Cant be kids and work r the only "enjoyable" stuffs in your life?
Just asking. Just I always wonder why do people want retire early ma. Never on my thoughts haha. At least for now. All those you mentioned can be done on weekends or days where I work from home once a week. Save my leaves for 2 travels in a year too. But my dream is still to climb to senior management instead of retire early haha

This may be true. The reason y i thought of early retirement is because i want to get out of the rat race as early as i can, so that i won't have to play mind games and politics for survival. I can be myself and do things that i want, not because i need to


Many 'early retirement' is because they are not motivated to career-switch and in the wrong sectors.

This is probably the primary reason for your case. You work because of ambition, less so for survival

Thread Not deviated... Just the pple who are buying Piermont Grand HDB-eligible EC better go brain scan whether they having the right mind at buy at such high psf when there are other public housing options for now. For me, I fear the govt trying to build less public housing and over-sell land for privatised housing. Anybody under the age of 45 (unless you lost hope for setting up a family) and fully paid up their housing loan should aspire for another housing loan till age 70 but MINUS the ABSD for SG citizens of course! THIS IS OUR LAND, so no HDB sales to non-citizens. Non-citizens (except those who marry in) and those who are SPRs should pay more ABSDs even from first housing.

I am not sure how many of us need 20-40 years to do things what we want.
May be like Bill Gates doing world charities ?

ECs are not an entitlement & not essential for many.
New condo are easily $1400 and above.

BTW, a level 40 brand new 113sqm 5-room at CityVue@Henderson is $809k (an edmw thread).
And Brani HDB flat BTOs should be >$1 million easily.

How you know you have 20-40 yrs to do things that you want? You have 生死簿?

Anyway the topic is not focusing on how many yrs, rather it is on whether retire early or not. How many yrs 因人而异

Interested first timers all chionged to buy during launch weekend alr.
Sure cannot fill up first timer quota already. Can only hope more 2nd timers got the money go buy the remaining high quantum units.

Remember they actually had two 2nd timer slots near end of launch day too.

Just touch on original topic without derailing too far

This EC too remote and not cheap
Confirm skip
If the project can break even is already good for developer
Piermont Grand EC price
According to the official website, prices will start from $1,100 psf. At that price, the smallest 840 sq ft unit will go for around $924,000, while the biggest unit (1,507 sq ft) will be around $1.66 mil.Jul 18, 2019

Iím still flabbergasted that sinkies would go for this $1100psf+ EC at such remote location really shocking to know weíre in recession now

My kid will in secondary school when I am 45 and having his own life. I dunno what else to enjoy at that point of time if not working ? Play video/computer games all day long ?
When I reach 45, I might think different. I am still 10 years from there.

Now my kids are from 6 months old and 2.5 years old. Good time to spend bonding, playing, teaching and watching them grow up. I can remember in details, the first minute each of them flip over, the first minute the older one sit up, stand up and start walking.

Until they want their own life, that is.

I see too many people working so hard, that by the time they are ready to have some more breathing time to spend with their kids, their kids, like what you say, want to have their own life.

Are most of those who want to 'retire early' here in 30s?

On average many Singaporeans live till 80s (some 100s).
Shortening the lives are easy but live till 60s-70s
are not that difficult.
Of course ultimately it depends on God.

It is weird to see the govt intend to raise the retirement age up & yet some want to lower it.
Some multimillionaires are okay but I bet many of them are still working / income flow.
