As corporate rats; we will run the Mill as dictated by Top Down and corporate development scene. We as rats running or spinning will have little control over how we should run the Mill. The day may arrive sooner than expected that we are no longer that happy rats running that old Mill. The Mill is unknowningly shifted or changed. As Manager over the years Uncle8888 has received quite a number of resignation letters and have to sit down with them to TRY to uncover the true reason behind the resignation. This guy's reason was uncommon and came as big surprise. He told Uncle8888: "I am liability to the Team!" and that was the reason he has to leave! The day we no longer enjoy spinning the Mill as rat; we unknowingly become Liability to the Team! How many unhappy rats have that guilt in them and choose to leave? Those who have reached some level of financial comfort? That guy has one investment property for rental; may be he has not reached financial independence; but may be financially comfortable to feel the guilt and walk out and seek elsewhere to spin the next mill as happy rat.
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
