These habits are ruining your happiness.
If I had a nickel for every time I read “I’m thinking about xxx,” or “I’m looking into yyy,” we could all retire. Today. All that talk does is make one feel better about not getting started. A year from now, they’ll still be staring at their shoes, convincing themselves that the right time is just around the corner.
F**king love this 🏼
"Retirement is a foundation of modern society that stupidly has made us delay what’s good in life to a time when we may be dead or, at best, alive but low on energy."
The important thing is knowing what we want. If that's a cubicle job that's okay. But the problem is most people don't know what they want. The reason is they don't build their lives based on values.
Habit #1 is something I’ve been wrestling with for the past month. I’m pregnant, have an 18 month old daughter, and a crazy nursing job. I tell myself I’ll start working on solopreneurship when I give birth. When my daughter gets older. The list goes on and on. But I know in the back of my mind I’m just finding excuses to not do it today.
Thanks Tim - so very true!
Tim, I liked that you shared your findings. I agree with you that waiting by the weather is not the best option, you often have to take risks and give up things to succeed.
One to share Tim. Great observations and calling 'us' out
wow, gave a moment to re-think
"google will steal their data and breach their privacy. For f*ck sake. Don’t be so piss-weak."
This reminds me so much of my elderly grandparent she just doesn't see the point in familiarizing herself with technology. I have to help her with everything which I don't mind but, I try to show her and she's not interested.
I agree with your wife spending money on good educational investments can return 10x the initial investment.
Waiting is the ultimate mindset that the perfect time will never exist. Starting is the most satisfying feeling you can give yourself. You can figure out everything else along the way.
Spot on, Tim. And this is from someone who dramatically skews the median age of your readership!
Boom. The retirement piece seems so obvious to me, but that particular illusion is just bloody rife in society. Nice one, Tim.
Tim, I just need to bring my parachute because I am jumping. This hostage is setting herself free. See you at the Masterclass. Freedom is the "ME"
Love this!!! 👏🏻
Spot on Tim, takes money to retire and not age.
Thanks to you, we have all the advantage and it will show up increased success and income.
But it all begins in the front burner--ourself.
Waiting for retirement to start living life on your terms is like waiting to think about packing warm clothes for an Everest climb when you’re already at Base Camp.
I retired in 2017 at 54. Get out as fast as you can and fill your life with wonder. Times a tickin!
