Guess quite a few 40s here. Let's see how many of us are prepared?

As for me, have already tried for a while, and that is working till my twilight years, coaching tennis. It can maintain my lifestyle as well as keep me healthy. Did it 2 yrs ago when I took a break, and found my calling AFTER I am done with the working world.

How abt you?

Me don't intend to retire just yet, but planning to slow down after seeing my kid through university...which is just a few years away.

To me, it is more important to get ourselves ready....to have a choice. A choice to continue working or continue to work. Many are forced to work to earn a living. If we have enough passive income we can choose whether to work or not.

I'd like to be an adjunct lecturer in NUS. Tried it before on part time basis and enjoyed interacting and sharing stories with the younger ppl.

giving back with experience and past working stints would help pass on the education and such, and yes, teaching should be like that. Waht is good is you interact and every batch is a different experience.

How to become adjunct lecturer? Not necessary in university. I am thinking of doing it in polys but don't know how to go about applying it.

For me, i kept close contact with my former lecturers & deans. So they know they can approach me whenever they need someone.

U can also write in directly. I believe if u have rich experience in your expertise, should be able to get some classroom hours.
