Thanks for starting this board, maszke!

I've asked this on dory36's board, so I'll ask here -- what keeps you going on the way toward FIRE? It's a long, long-term goal for sure, so how do you keep yourself motivated along the way and also enjoy your life?


As simple as it sounds, I don't like to work. I don't necessarily dislike my job but I figured out a long time ago that the 9-to-5 grind isn't for me. I think I'd be much happier doing work that allows me a great deal of flexibility. I love to travel and two weeks a year vacation just doesn't scratch my itch.
