Financial independence is a means to an end, not an end in itself
I'm not sure whether you've already written about his, but would be interesting to learn about your routine/how you organize your day.
This was timely for me. I believe I've hit FI but continue to struggle with the "what next"? I've been forced to mostly telework the last couple of years and I miss those same things from going to work everyday.
Really enjoyed this FIRE article. Our paths have a similar timeline- I closed our business in 2008 after the GFC basically killed it in the months after the crash. I could have stuck it out and held on I suppose, but I thought we had saved enough to quit and live on about 3%, and I was tired of the business anyway, so I pulled the plug and closed it down. Still living on around 3% thanks to Berkshire. I realize I need to find more meaningful things to do in retirement however and not just play 24/7, but I have not found anything I want to do yet. Don’t think I want to start another business that would tie me down.
