Very impressive indeed. However, very few people can achieve similar results. Everyone ages differently. Some cars are lemons and start rusting and failing in a few years. Same with our bodies. A good idea is to be in tough with you progress down the road of life and try to estimate your progress on the curve of your decline. Create a living trust early if you have anything of consequence. Arrange your final affairs as much as practicable. Then keep doing what you like as long as you can. The man in the article is doing what he likes. That's part of the reason for his success.

Not impressive at all, it's not like he's working a McDonalds five days a week, he runs his own company. He works because he choose to not because he has to. Let's see how well his old ass does digging ditches for minimum wage working 14 hour days.

Surely his company is run by his son's wives by now. He is just the company mascot. If he fails to report for work his heart would stop. He is just a piece of machinery that knows nothing else. He is a self imagined god that will be forgotten the minute they throw the first shovel of dirt on his casket. His toil will be pizzed away by the courtd and wimminz is all.
