NOTHING MATTERS

Nothing matters if the essentials are not in order and functioning. Nothing we talk about, neither money, nor retirement, nor plans, nor savings, nor investments, or anything at all matters if you’re not well or your people are not well.

You´ll always be with me. RIP

This week has been very difficult, one of […]

SCARY WEEK . . . THERE WILL BE MORE

Scary Week, Right?

 

This week has been a shock for many, for me too. This is the first week after long bonanza in the markets where values ​​fall, passing the dreaded 10% mark, therefore falling into the category of correction and, most alarming of all, opening the door to uncertainty if the stock market […]

AUSTERITY vs. FRUGALITY

One of the great debates in the FIRE community is this. At what point does one go from frugal to austere, and from austere to other more problematic contexts. . . Where do we draw the line?

On the verge . . .

 

Frugality

Nobody is going to discuss the virtues of frugality […]

DALÍ: LIQUID PAINTINGS

The persistence of memory

 

Salvador Dalí, father of surrealism uh!, understood that time is extremely difficult to measure. I am not talking about seconds, minutes, or months; I am talking about sensing the time, feeling the time.

Liquid clocks melting in “The Persistence of Memory” by Dalí.

Life goes by in an instant […]

Travel with your mind . . .

Me too, that´s why I keep planning and studying my way out of the system. Slowly but surely, calm but without loosing sight of the target.

 

It would be nice to […]

THE PATIENCE OF WATER

TIME WILL BE ON YOUR SIDE

Patience is a virtue, especially in the age in which the most important is the instantaneous, the ephemeral. You must be prepared to act at any time, but you must be patient until that time comes. The major GOALS are not achieved overnight. Water has all the patience in […]

BLOG: EARLY RETIREMENT LIFESTYLE

REVIEW: RETIRE EARLY LIFESTYLE

 

I know it is early to talk about life once already in RETIREMENT, but it is important to dream big and remember one of the mottos that guide this blog: “Keep the feet on the ground and the head in the clouds.” It is crucial to be able to visualize […]

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY . . . STAY AWAY

NO MONEY? JUST DO NOT BUY IT

 

It is difficult and the impulses are constant, but you must overcome temptation and keep a cool head. Think about what you really need, and the consequences or the impact of your spending goals.

If you do not have the money, do not buy it. It is […]

BLOG: LIVING A FI

REVIEW: Living A FI

 

Today we look into the blogger Living a FI, another engineer retired early, at 38, (another that I can not reach . . . a sigh for my time). In my opinion this is the clearest discourse on personal finance I have seen in the blogosphere. No mincing words, he […]
