The light is dim but I see something! <g> How far do you have to go syker? What, if any, observations in your work psyche have you noticed as you have gotten closer to your FIRE goal?

Well, I'm 42 now, so I've got eight years to go. Mathematically the numbers work out, in fact I'm ahead of schedule but who knows what the future will hold?

I started my own business a three or four years ago, so my situation is a little different than most people's, as far as working for the man is concerned because I am the man. I think that accelerated my FIRE a little but, but I did spend about a year eating cat food and drew my savings some. The next year I broke even (but didn't save anything) and since then things have been going really well.

One thing would be to grow the business, and then sell it. But I'm not sure I want to do the extra work in the meantime. Maybe that is part of the change in my work psyche.
