what keeps you going on the way toward FIRE?

To me, it's not a choice. It's a requirement.

You see, I have been working for fifteen years, and I've never found a job I really really liked. At first I thought I just hadn't found the right job, but as I've tried different things, I realized there are two things about me that make jobs difficult:

1. I find it very easy to find flaws in the way people do things, so when I'm working, it's easy to point that talent toward my own company and co-workers. Ouch.

2. I like variety.

So I know at some point I'm just not going to be able to get up the motivation to work anymore. I'll work as long as I can last, but I want to be in a position so that when the day comes, I'll be ready.
