I realise that I tend to focus less on the investment portfolio with the assurance of the generated dividends covering my expenses. This is the way in which one should be focusing on. Money and investment portfolio et are the vehicles which enables one to live the lifestyle she/she desires. One will focus on developing the interests and focus on such interests to make one happy and fulfilled.
I opine that one will have achieved the purpose in life as long as one is happy with the prevailing circumstance of life. I prefer minimalism approach and this makes my journey to FIRE more easily and with lesser barrier. It is fine with me doing nothing during the course of the day. Doing nothing is a form of self-recharging as per my perspective. I believe that this is the way which suits my preference. Things (which I prefer) may not be others’ cup of tea. Every individual is different. He/She will have to discover and know the type of the things he/she likes. I think that this is the way in which makes every individuals different. The same also applies on the networth which determine whether one is FIRE. The same networth may not be applicable to two individuals, in term of FIRE.
One will have to adjust, assess and make the appropriate decisions to make his/her lifestyle more fulfilling. No one can make the decision on his/her behalf.
