  • Why you should beware of The One More Year Syndrome
  • How the FIRE movement is evolving

Wise Quotes

On Deferring Living

“The sadness was maybe he should have had his bags packed years and years before. And it’s really a lesson that I see over and over again with the dying that I try to bring to the financial lives of young people is we need to start living now. We can’t always put it off to the last minute. Some people are lucky enough, like Sam, they do get to live out some of their last dreams when they find that a terminal illness is indeed upon them, but most people don’t. And so it’s incumbent upon us to start thinking about these things to having our bags packed now.”

On Money as a Tool, Not a Goal

“So looking at money as the overall goal generally leads to unhappiness. And so I think we have to really think about the role of money in our lives and recognize that it is a tool one of many different tools we have to live purposeful lives. And if we stop looking at it as a tool, I think it eventually leads to a sense of disconnect and unhappiness. But if we think of it and it’s rightful place as a way to do those other things that are important to us, um, it can be very enriching and really help us get to our goals.”

On Purpose, Identity and Connections

“So when I talk about the goal of our lives is not to make money, it’s actually to live lives of purpose, identity and connections. What I’m really saying actually is that we have a limited amount of time on this earth, okay? And time passes, no matter what we do, we can’t buy it, we can’t sell it, we can’t commoditize it. It is what it is. The only things we can kind of control is what activities we put into those time slots. We call them days, months, years, whatever you want to call them. But we have these time slots and so the only control over time we have is either controlling what we put in those time slots or on a very minimal level we can change how we perceive time. So I love to say when you’re young it seems like time is infinite, but when you get older it seems like time flies.”
