Early forced retirement: The downsizing ride begins / The Good Advice

New York Stock Exchange and General Washington

A sometimes hectic life.

“The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.”

   –  Oscar Wilde


My father wasn’t one to offer too much advice. He usually just worked hard, and quietly lived the family life. He was a chemical engineer, who was employed by the same engineering firm for about 35 years, until he retired at age 65. That’s how it was in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. You worked for one company all your adult life, if you could. Loyalty was a big plus to employers. Job-hopping was severely frowned upon by all; employers would see you as a person who was untrustworthy, as you might pick up and quit at any time.
