Perils Of Early FIRE

There are some posts on the blogs which mentions on the dangers of early FIRE. I am aware of such circumstances. This is evident in which the so-called early FIRE wannabes are said to make the potential big mistakes in underestimating the effect of inflation. The numbers might look ok at the time of pulling the trigger on the early retirement. The one is able to enjoy his/her carefree life, play computer games at game and meeting his/her friends during the occasional gatherings and cultivating bonsai at his/her balcony.  I am of view that this is potentially a concern. However, this can be addressed through reducing the expenses. One will not be blindly buying the essential items at the first time of searching. There will be comparison on the items offered by different merchants before the individual make the final decision on the item purchase.

During the almost two months of early retirement, I do not play computer games and feel that this is a waste of time and mind. I have encountered such circumstances during my younger days and I conclude that it is not worthwhile to focus on spending all my time on such activity. I will rather spend the time doing exercise and build up my body fitness which will give a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle keeps the illness at bay.

I do not rule out the full-time employment in future. It is an option for me and I will only do it if I want to do it and not I have to do it. Such option is precious for me and I will not exchange it for any monetary reward.
