I’m sure you’ve heard the saying about time, energy, and money. When you’re young you have time & energy, but no money. You trade your time for money when you are an adult. In the end, you are left with time & money, but no energy to enjoy it when you are older. It’s truly the Devil’s Dilemma.
Early retirement fights those trade offs. While I am not as rich as I might have been, and not as vigorous as I once was, I have more than my share of time, energy, and money to still enjoy in big doses. When it comes to travel, sports, or new hobbies – now is the time to tackle them all.
When people say to me “you are one of the busiest retired people I’ve ever seen,” I think, why shouldn’t I be? I’m just 55 years old and closing out my 6th year of early retirement. I have all the time, energy, and money that I will ever have. If I ever want to do something, damn straight I’ll be doing it now.
So Carpe Diem!
Are your time, energy, and money resources in equal vigor?
