LuckyInvestor has been busy building a kind of reference manual / index to our ‘grand experiment’ at 7m7y.com … take a look and let him know what you think (what is he missing? what’s in/out of place? suggestions?) … the only reason why I won’t directly support the site is that I am not sure where it is going and I cannot control if he eventually puts in advertising, which is against my principles for this program (but, he is welcome to) … so, any help that you can / want to give him … check this out: http://luckyinvestormn.blogspot.com/
Now, on with today’s post ….
If you think you’re confused, then you really are confused!
After reading my answer to her original problem Ethel left a long – and critically important – comment, saying:
I’m glad that Ethel asked the question on NWiQ and gave me the opportunity to respond here, because she has summarized very neatly in this comment what I have obviously so far failed to make clear on this blog.
And, that is:
Retirement is not some nebulous date in 30 years when society ‘norms’ say that it’s time to stop working …
… it’s when you need to stop preparing to live and actually start living!
You ‘magic number’ is not merely a number ….
… it’s a DATE.
A date when you need to stop working (or, at least stop working as hard) to concentrate on LIVING your Life’s Purpose.
