Yup! If you are still working for wages... You can benefit from the lesson of this book. It is about changing your attitude toward employment, getting beyond employment.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you. Retirement is amazing. You will finally get to do what you want to do when you want to do it.

Today, the head of the company tried to convince me to stay. I made it clear that I would not do that....but he wants me to be an 'associate' and come every two weeks or so. I have 'so much institutional knowledge'. I don't want to do this....he said to think about it and we will talk next week. He just doesn't understand that I am finished, all over the job, no more!!!

popcorn247, I can relate to that. I was bombarded for 4 weeks.

"Thank you, that's flattering, but ... (insert phrase)
"I'm done."
"I'm finished."
"I have plans."
"I have no interest in working anymore."
"It's time for me now."
"I'm done thinking about it."
"I'm sorry you don't understand."
"That's the way it is."

Isn't it ironic that when you're through with it all and want nothing more than to get out, they decide you're too valuable to let leave? Do what's best for you and don't feel guilty about it.
