Discussing Options in an End-Game

Part of the Springer Studies in Work and Industry book series (SSWI)


The opportunity of a momentous decision—and deciding whether to retire or not, especially whether to retire early, is surely a momentous decision for most people—sometimes comes upon us without forewarning. It is often on such occasions that we appreciate most dearly the value of an informed decision. We think of a host of questions to which we would like to have answers, “if only there were time.” Never mind that many, perhaps all, of the questions would lack definite, unambiguous, or unconditional answers even if time were plentiful. Confronted unexpectedly by a perceived need to decide now, we recognize very acutely the difference between the inadequacies of uncertain or imperfect information and the inadequacy of having to make a decision without information that could have been gathered had only time allowed.
