Bill Murray is a Senior Citizen and He is still working!
Remember when the financial institutions ran all those ads showing people in retirement and living in the lap of luxury? All those so called financial experts who had done a magnificent job creating wealth for their clients. As a matter of fact I remember an ad where the people even took their financial expert on vacation with them.
Most of the so called financial experts were not right and many lost their life’s savings. Now the financial experts are telling their clients they have to work longer.
It just so happens that it’s a blessing and not a curse. When people retire they have to find things to do other they will wither away. Retirement starts with the retiree going full out playing golf and enjoying life like they dreamed about. Spending time in the lap of luxury without a care in the world.
After several years they start to realize that their money is not going to make it through out their lifetime. They are going to out live their wealth. So they realize that finding a part time job will enable them to have some extra income to offset the loss of wealth that inflation is robbing them of.
The part time job is welcomed because they now have additional income to supplement their retirement. But, another thing is occurring as a side effect of all this and that is they are being active and keeping their minds sharpe. They are forced to work but more importantly they are doing things that will benefit their health later in life.
The La Times ran an article about Seniors who work are healthier then the ones who don’t. They are doing several things at the same time. They are preserving their income as well as preserving their health.
So, many of the financial experts ended up being wrong about wealth creation but the seniors benefited from the extended work to offset their loss. What is the moral, slow down but don’t quit.
I don’t know why Bill Murray is still working but I would guess he still loves it and will continue till he can’t. He is an inspiration to Seniors as well as many high profile people still working. Look at out current United States President, Donald Trump, he is 70 years old and still going like he was 50.
