Time spent with close family members is better than time spent at work. This is likewise the same for the time spent on doing things one like is definitely much better than time spent on work.
I am now on the verge of comtemplating to quit the full time employment at the almost ripe age of 40. The only drawback is the alternative time slot in lieu of my full time employment. I need to find my passion of interest in which I can devote my time on. Otherwise, it will be wasteful ifling my time at home. This is despite having the ability to do so for almost a decade before my money run out due to expenses incurred for my current simple lifestyle.
Time is of essence. Now is the right time for me to execute my FI plan of getting out of the rat race. I csn still alter my plan depending on the prevailing circumstance. What if the worst case scenario in which my stash is fully utilised? I can still go back to work though the barrier of entry will be higher due to possible irrelevant experience and older age? The employers are less inclined to employ people of over 40 years old in the place which I currently reside. Despite all these barriers, I am absolutely confident that I can still find jobs as long as I keep on trying to look for it. There is a possibility that I do not need to resort to such options if the dividend generated from my investment covers my simple lifestyle expenses in whole. “Heaven devine, Man act”.
There is nothing which remains the same all this year. The constant is change. I am of view that one should go for early FIRE if possible. Life is short. Cherish the moment!
