    Well assuming that the dollar is still the world's reserve currency and hasn't crashed; that the USA is still in tact as an entity; climate change hasn't led to massive strife, hunger, and depopulation; the global economy is still functional; and that all has otherwise gone according to plan financially and careerwise...you could do what many of my colleagues currently do in Asia--teach English in foreign lands to stretch your retirement. You get to travel and work AND be retired all at the same time.

    I have wondered what I will do after I retire. It's a good question. You're a bit young to be trying to figure that out now though. It's hard to know what will happen that far from now. I'd say if there is something you want to do, you could do it sooner rather than later.

    You might want to do what you're doing later in your career but just do it part time. You should know that being an adjunct professor pays shit. It might be the kind of thing you could do that would be very rewarding if you didn't need money and don't mind volunteering your time. Counseling also sounds fun but you'd have to drum up business somehow and if you don't have any experience - it might take a bit of effort. I believe there is a fair amount of ageism that kicks in in certain careers after you hit a certain age as well. I know a software engineer for example that is in his 50s and he can't get a job. You would think with all his experience in software development that he'd be highly employable but he's not because of his age. I know a guy who retired early from his job selling lawn products and started a dog kennel/grooming business with his wife. It sounds horrendously stressful - dogs biting you, all that noise, the stress of putting all your capital into a new business and trying to make a go of it, etc.

    1) You have no idea where you're going to be in 40 years.
    2) We don't know where the economy will be or what it will look like 40 years from now.
    3) If I have to work somewhere when I'm 62 and I'm not doing what I do now, I would bag groceries for Publix in the morning shift. Easy, stressless job
