I had a dream last night about going back to work. In this dream the MegaCorp bosses were in a pinch and wanted me and one of my former colleagues to come back and fix the business I used to run. It seemed like fun in the dream, but I don’t know how the dream turned out since I woke up before we got too far into it. (No, I don’t think it is a message from my subconscious that it’s time to go back to work!)
I haven’t had many work dreams since I early retired – probably less than I can count on my fingers in more than two years of being a goof off. This might be the first one where I was going BACK to work. When I was working, I could recall having many work dreams – certainly at least 1x or 2x a week.
I would have expected to have work dreams when I first retired, but they seemed to disappear right away. Perhaps my mind was too busy with the new adventures that came with a FIRE lifestyle (financially independent & retired early). When I look back on my posts right after I retired – one week retired and 50 days retired – I’m surprised how busy I became right away.
If you are still working, how often do you have work dreams? How quickly did work dreams fade away after you stopped working?
