Sounds down right ludicrous, doesn’t it?

That’s what I thought too until I read a study by Dr. Sing Lin.

This study was basically analyzing the relationship between an employee’s retirement age and the average age at death. The results were shocking.

Here are a few of the highlights that Dr. Lin touched on:

  • The most precious, creative and innovative period in your life is the 10-year period around the age of 32.
  • You should plan your career path and financial matter so that you can retire comfortably at the age of 55 or earlier to enjoy your long, happy and leisure retirement life.
  • If you are not able to get out of the pressure-cooker or the high-speed battleground at the age of 55 and “have” to keep on working very hard until the age of 65 or older before your retirement, then you probably will die within 18 months of retirement.
  • Working very hard in the pressure cooker for 10 more years beyond the age of 55, you give up at least 20 years of your life span on average.

Here’s what those statements are based on:

By itself, this was amazing but it got me thinking.  I remember reading years ago that each cigarette that someone smokes takes off approximately 10 minutes of their life.  So a regular smoker, say someone who smokes one pack a day, would lose 200 minutes a day or 73,000 minutes a year.  73,000 minutes is 1,217 hours which equals 51 days.

OMG – if someone smokes after the age of 50 they’ll lose 51 days a year but if they work for a year they’ll lose two years off their life expectancy?!?!  What the heck is going on? Is working really that detrimental to your health?

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not advocating smoking as a habit.  To be honest, I can’t stand it when people smoke. And, my little ‘smoking assumption’ doesn’t include any prior damage done to the body from the probable years of smoking abuse done up to that point.

What I would like to point out though is that working smart while you are young and planning accordingly looks like it will not only provide for a nice retirement, but also for a long one…

To your success,
