“Freedom is not the ability to act on any given impulse, it is the ability to choose what you want to act on, and why. It is not the absence of commitments, values, or discipline, it is the ability to choose them at will.”
“If you don’t owe anybody money, you don’t have to take any shit from anybody, ever.”

“Life rewards the doers, that much is true. But life also rewards those who prioritize what’s actually worth doing.”
via Jon Westenberg
“If you’re rich or you’re poor, you can’t let money be the central concern and driving force of your life. You have to look at money as being a tool. Nothing more — nothing less.”
via Cole Schafer
“Earning more makes no difference if you aren’t saving. A rich wealthy doctor making $1 million a year, but spending $1 million a year is not rich and wealthy.”
My Favorite Podcast
An interview with retirement researcher and financial planner Michael Kitces on the safe withdrawal rate, the origin of the 4% rule, and how early retirees have unique problems and advantages financially. This podcast is seriously one hour of gold.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
