Fear Of Taking Action

I hear the bloggers mentioning the deathbed of the elderly person’s regrets. There are instances in which these people indicate the following regrets.

  • Regret of not spending time with their children.
  • Regret of not taking action in realising their dreams.

There are no mention of the regret of spending more time for their work. This goes to show that most people do not like the full-time job. This comes the Monday blues which is the first day of every workweek for most countries.

I believe that this should be my motivation of taking immediate action to quit my full-time employment. Why am I not doing so? I conduct my own self-assessment and note the common factor of “fear”.

The fear in which the retirement portfolio’s inability to sustain my lifestyle for the rest of my life. There are also external factors on the people ‘s opinion in which one will need millions and millions of dollar to qualify for FIRE.

I read the following blog by Jason.




The above links is intriguing and express the need to take action for FIRE not until the math tells us to do so. I believe that this is the right things for one to do so.

I read the above link every day to keep me motivated and hopefully I will be able to take action on the route to FIRE.
