@Smashter - The [doctor] conversation was also relevant to scientists---the real doctors :) ---minus the income/debt whiplash. Having one's identity totally tied up with the work and an inability to go back [to research] is analogous.

@Jacob -- that's a good point. It's also similar to the challenges facing pro athletes in fringe leagues.

Unconventional investment style that focuses on preservation of capital, etc. I got some Harry Browne-ish vibes, but clearly different. Some interesting intersections with ERE ideas of wealth/capital and "enduring over the long term"

I found that fascinating. He was articulating all the reasons why I can't bring myself to start investing.

Video: How I retired at 36, and spent 20 years sailing (FIRE, Minimalism, and when "Enough" is Enough)

What I saw it is mostly based on a YMOYL-mindset.
An earlier video of this guy (and now I found out a later video was already posted here):

Not sure if it has been recommended already. I watched this video yesterday and I thought that it was very inspiring and relaxing.

The guy also has a website and plenty of more videos.

"One man leaves the city life behind to build a cheap off grid log cabin and homestead in the Canadian wilderness, including a log home, an outdoor kitchen, an outhouse, a woodshed and a sauna bathhouse. Building mostly with hand tools, Shawn James harvests building materials from the forests north of Toronto, Canada and crafts them into functional tools and shelters using traditional woodworking tools and methods..."

@Jacob

Same guy I was talking about above. Selfreliance. He has amazing videos, very nice quality videos and wonderful landscape!

Apparently, he RE, doesn't get to explain his story though...

Shawn James, who does the My Self Reliance YouTube channel that revolves around building a cabin in the woods, also has a personal channel. On it, he touches on some ERE type stuff in his Path to Self Reliance playlist.
The second link is to Shawn's personal account and the playlist where he discusses his journey and ERE-related thoughts.
