Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features a doctor who quit his career to skate, an interview with a quant who earns $600k per year, and much more. Enjoy!

“How cool would it be to simplify our homes and focus solely on streamlining them? Make them more peaceful. Make them more aligned with a feeling of calm instead of worrying about buying or accumulating whatever we thought we needed before. For me, that’s living.”

“Someone needing to stay at a job they may not love because they have a family to take care of, or college to pay for, or basic financial independence to achieve, does not mean that they don’t have the same desire to learn and grow as someone who travels.”

“There’s a lot of people that make 55 thousand dollars a year when they’re 23. The problem is they go to Coachella, and they want to buy a watch, and they want to buy a BMW, and I didn’t. I ate shit for 13 years, and then when I had an opportunity I struck. I’m ultimately patient. It’s what I do.”

“There’s no way to sugarcoat the fact that it’s easy to be rich if you make $600K a year. But lifestyle creep occurs at all levels of income.”
“It’s easy to look at some of the modern growth stock success stories, the massive wealth being created in Silicon Valley and elsewhere, and want a piece of that for yourself. It’s far less satisfying in the short-run to own a basket of slower-growth companies that may not operate in exciting industries.”
My Favorite Podcast

An interview with Steve from Think Save Retire on retiring at age 35 to live in an Airstream with his wife and travel around North America.
