@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)
