I am retired and always had an idea of what I wanted to do when I had my time instead of working for someone else.
To wait until one retires before thinking on possibilities is kind of late.
In other words think on it well before one retires , that way one can plan out long term goals and meet them .
Follow your dream job unless its obsolete by the time one retires? Factor that eventuality just in case?

Loved that song.
Chorus
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Verse 1]
Jungle life, I’m far away from nowhere
On my own, like Tarzan, boy
Hide-and-seek, I play alone while rushing ‘cross the forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon

[Verse 2]
Jungle life, I’m living in the open
Native beat that carries on
Burning bright, a fire that blows the signal to the sky
I sit and wonder, does the message get to you?
[Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Bridge]
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other
Chance tonight
Give me the other, give me the other
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other world!
[Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

[Verse 3]
Jungle life, you’re far away from nothing
It’s all right, you won’t miss home
Take a chance, leave everything behind you, come and join me
You won’t be sorry; it’s easy to survive!

[Verse 4]
Jungle life, we’re living in the open
All alone, like Tarzans, boy
Hide-and-seek we play alone while rushing ‘cross the forest
Monkey business on a sunny afternoon

[Bridge 2]
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other
Chance tonight, oh yeah!
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other
Night to night
You won’t play, yeah
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other
Chance tonight, oh yeah!
Night to night
Night to night
Give me the other, give me the other world!

[Chorus][Chorus]
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-o

Maybe work the census. They’re passing out flyers here looking for employees—thirty bucks an hour. Might be interesting work.

I’m already there! But having enough money to start some business venture is the hard part. I started my own business going to people’s houses and cleaning up after their dogs. No franchise. And I already had a pick-up truck, so for an extra $100 I was in business! Not a fancy, luxurious endeavor, but one I could do that had little or no competition.

Actuary perhaps. Maybe hand crafting bicycle frames or something like that. I’m already starting to collect guitar making tools to run a small shop when I retire but that’s going to happen so it’s not really a change.

One idea anyway is protecting wildlife reservations from poachers, using weapons. It’s legal in some parts of Africa.

I’m never going to retire, but if I can manage to work less I’d really like to volunteer at the Children’s Hospital. Read to the patients. Help out in some way.
