Here s Why You Shouldn't Retire Early Even If You Can

Recommended Posts

I’ve spent months seeking out FIRE criticisms and cautionary tales, but I think this article will be the last that I read.

If you’ve got 33x yearly expenses and are willing to go all in on stocks (or close to it) then I haven’t heard a reasonable argument for not pulling the trigger.

This guy is complaining about his deflated ego because he has no competition, work stimulation and comradery, ETC., because of FIRE, WELL GO BACK TO WORK!  He is not ready.

FIRE experience is not for wimps. One has to be ready to be flexible, independent, experiential, and courageous. Fighting the borrow and spend culture and letting go of the work status and recognition is difficult for some.

I’m sure this point has been made a million times, but I think consumerism requires far more hardship, bravery, and struggle than minimalism or FIRE does.
