I really feel that trap a lot myself. In about 30 mins I'm interviewing my own replacement for a cushy, well paying IT job, and I don't have anything lined up for myself afterwards except some savings, a long list of boat projects, some destinations I want to sail to and a few ideas of alternate ways to earn income(writing, freelance IT, etc).
But I guess my fear of losing my good health and not being able to travel is greater than my fear of ending up not being able to make ends meet or find employment a year from now.
Still I always have that small voice saying "just stick it out in the corporate world and earn a little more money first..." I don't know if that voice would ever go away though.
