… not sure I like the term “fat” FIRE, and as I commented elsewhere, I actually see FIRE as redundant, since my definition of retirement is an active one, but where I’d only do things that motivate me for their doing regardless of income. Thus , for me at least, FI = RE.
Hi Opher Ganel thanks for the comment. I like this definition of FIRE. That should be the goal. Getting to a place where you feel free to make decisions based purely off what you are motivated to do, not what your finances dictate you do.
For me personally, If/when I achieve FIRE I would want to focus exclusively on writing, even though it’s unlikely to ever generate substantial revenue.
