1. I haven't reach financial independence! 2. I need MORE money to pay for increasing household expenses for growing up children 3. I need MORE money to save and invest In the same office; we can see some working very hard and some slacking obviously. The funny thing is that some of these slackers were previously working very hard. How come like that?
Real Manager. Real Slacker. This ex colleague kept complaining to Uncle8888 about this slacker in his team and Uncle8888 replied to him. Either you sack him or live with it as he doesn't need the job as he already reached financial independence way ahead of his time. He is in the office just to pass time. The Moral of Story Not all who have reached financial independence means they will retire early to travel more or having lots of leisure and fun. Some of them still prefer to stay on as office worker but they will slack. They are liability to the team; but at the same time Uncle8888 as Manager we will know that we need these slackers for the Bell Curve! Good thing is that these financial independence slackers will not bother about their performance assessment and bonus. Win Win? Whoever comes to Uncle8888 to complain about these slackers; he will just tell them you go to seek financial independence and one day you also can be like that!
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.
