MM Lee: "Work as long as you can" - There should be no retirement age

I agree with Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yew on his comment that one should keep his mind occupied to stay healthy. However, I do not think there should be no retirement age for workers because everyone should have the luxury to rest and relax after having worked for decades.

MM Lee was also quoted

There’s something to do tomorrow and you keep going. If you start saying ‘Oh, I’m old’ and you start reading novels or playing golf or playing chess or Scrabble, you’re on your way down.

Playing chess or scrabble can lead one on his way down? How is that possible?
