Yesterday I was having a conversation with someone who was a bit lost in their career. They weren’t sure what they wanted to do next but were quite certain about what the end goal would be: $10 million of assets.
I asked the next question. “…and then what?”
“well then I could do whatever the heck I wanted”
“You just got a year of severance. Can’t you do that now?”
There is always more to do. We are never fully done. The choice to live can be made at any time. You have higher odds of making it happen today. You can never be sure if you’ll even make it to that magical endpoint.
