One of my favorite parts of a FIREy life is slow travel. Before I left work, my vacations were like this: Ask boss for one week off. Fly somewhere on Friday night after work. Run around like a crazy person trying to cram 21 days of activity into 7. Arrive home exhausted on Sunday night.

Now it’s time for a new goal and in the second quarter, I’m focusing on strength training.

The girls get out of school next week. I want to enjoy the summer with them, so I’ve been trying to tie up loose ends before break starts. The problem is that there are a lot of loose ends.

Every other Friday, I provide an update on my exercise goals. In between, I’m writing about mental fitness. In the first edition, I discussed not complaining. Today, I discuss friendship. Or not. I read a book called the 12 Rules for Life that contained some really great advice. One of my favorites was Rule #3: Make […] The post Zen And The Art Of Mind Maintenance: People Filters appeared first on 1500 ...

One of the best parts of the FIRE movement is the community. There are FIREy folks all over the world eager to chat about saving money, play board games and proudly show off their 2003 Honda with 220,000 miles on the clock. The hard part can be finding these people: Is the lady in the […] The post Introducing FI Clubs appeared first on 1500 Days to Freedom. ...

The FIRE movement is evolving. While it’s been around for a long time, the modern resurgence started with blogs like Early Retirement Extreme and Get Rich Slowly. Mr. Money Mustache came along in 2011 and took the scene to the next level. Even back then, the community was small and somewhat homogeneous (overrepresented by high paid […] The post Are You LeanFIRE, FatFIRE Or FartFIRE? appeared first on 1500 Days to Freedom. ...

My main goal* was to build an investment and cash portfolio of $1,120,000* in 1500 days**, starting from 1/1/2013 and ending in February of 2017. I achieved my goal in 2016, my 1500 Days are over, and I’ve left my job. In the interest of openness, I’ll continue to share my numbers. My portfolio is down about $80,000 from its […] The post March Performance Update (Day 1915): Pulling Back The Bowstring appeared first on 1500 ...
