Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

sounds exciting, and also sounds like as long as you don't succumb to hipster cafes and avocado toast, the increase in rent will more or less be offset by increased income + decreased transportation expenses due to being able to ditch the car. cool! Hopefully schedule will end up alright.

Re: Systems!- Level 6 towards 7

Might be getting off topic but, strength training improves bone density which helps with bone brittleness as one ages; specific types of strength training that target the pelvic floor like kettlebell swings for instance are one way to prevent/delay old age incontinence. Just for that, I'd argue it's...

i really like this approach. for me, too, ERE ultimately isn't about skills or tools or engineering a system or having a spreadsheet or anything technical really. It's a matter of nailing down the psychology, and once that is nailed down, the rest will follow. I agree that it is wise to flip the psy...
