I'll probably do not mind some part-time work after I retire. I'll be bored to death just staying at home all day watching my children/grand-children run around

Yeah. If I get what I really want to why not continue to contribute to the society and let other people live my legacy.

Even if I want to, when I am old, 心有余 力不足

But the question would be "How can you enjoy life without money?"

It depends on individuals, in order to be rich. You will need to know how to save up and get good jobs.

Yes as long as I enjoy the job.
I would not mind working in a bike factory building bikes and servicing bikes.

Investments would be good, but working at an old age is really hard to say. I would like to see the rest of the world while I still have the time to appreciate it.

Re: Would you want to work as long as you can?

When you're old and you're still working, you will get lower pay and still have to face younger peers who are your manager.

It will definitely accelerate your heart condition if you have one.

In addition, if you die, the company's compensation won't be a lot as well. Its a lose lose situation.

The question is not "Would you want...", its "Do I really have a choice?"
