    a situation when someone starts working fewer hours before the usual age for stopping work in order to do other things

    Some people are now quitting their full-time jobs in their 50s (sometimes, their 40s) to pursue early unretirement, stepping away from a career path to design a more flexible lifestyle, a mix of earned income (usually part-time), volunteering and, yes, fun.
