I sold my soul to Honda for 30 years. Missed half of my kids childhood. Early retirement is the payoff.
If I was single it would be difficult to fully retire.

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
