Yeah, that's the thing... So often these things tend to be serendipitous in nature. It's virtually impossible to rationally predict whether next month holds a sale on chicken or an IPO. The more you have, the more options de jour. Obviously there has to be a limit of the marginal utility for personal purposes. What that is? I have no clue.
Funny you mention that. I had an issue at work that felt like a very big straw on this camels back. This particular issue would have made my life miserable for some time to come. I had decided I was going to put in my notice over it as the utility of more money is continually decreasing. It was time to execute a previously imagined "Option B". Grandiose plans came into my mind! I became very excited and more energetic than I had been in a long time! When I spoke to my supervisor about my plans to leave, siting this issue as too large a burden, they immediately reversed course and went back to the status quo. I was disappointed to say the least, now work wont be miserable enough for me to leave. I'm not sure if that's a good thing? FU money status does have it's advantages... I guess.7Wannabe5 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:27 pmPart of where I am coming from with my magnetic draw to OPTION B is that I did the mental exercise where you choose what you would do if there were no limiting factors or restrictions of any kind put upon you, and I immediately went to "Check myself into a spa retreat." , and then because I am almost reflexively frugal, I asked myself "How can you create your own spa retreat for you?"
PS Go super trooper!!
