It’s been over a month since I left my nine to five (unplugging post, link here). I thought it would be worthwhile recapping what it’s been like. The first thing I had to do was get a routine going. You can’t live in holiday mode forever. That’s something I’ll get onto a bit more later. … Continue reading Unplugging From The Nine to Five-trix: One Month On
It’s taken six years and the majority of my twenties but I actually, finally, eventually, suddenly (?), did it. Not quite suddenly, I admit, because I “always knew” I wouldn’t be doing this forever. I’ve always had a sense that I didn’t want to work for someone else. That, if it were possible, it would … Continue reading Unplugging From The Nine to Five-trix
Today’s guest post is from a fellow Daygamer who wants to quit the 9-5, unplug from the matrix, escape the rat race, and get involved in all of those sayings which raise a metaphorical middle finger to the life which is expected of most western men. Mr MK’s story is really interesting to me and … Continue reading Guest Post: Mr MK’s Semi-Retirement Awaits
Today’s post is back with the Time Rich, Cash Poor series. Here are the links for parts one, two and three. Today’s post is specifically about budgeting and you could also call this one “how to be a stingy c*nt.” I will get around to adding a fifth part to this series at some point … Continue reading Cash Poor: Can I Afford to Quit My 9-5?
I’d like to cap off this week of work-related posts with a quick update. I ended up talking to my manager about my plans: I didn’t say exactly what I was going to do, just that I was going to be leaving within the next 8 months “to start my own business.” I’m lucky in … Continue reading Work Update, and The Importance of Being Able to Walk Away
I recently finished reading this short book and thought I’d talk about it today as it can be linked to Monday’s post about work. The unintended side effect of me telling girls that my job is “personal coaching” is that it has put my current work into stark contrast. I can speak with such conviction … Continue reading Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl (Review/Summary)
I recently put out a tweet asking what people would like to see posts on and one good suggestion from Lee Cho was “why do you want to be a full time coach?” Today I’ll go through my thinking, hopes, dreams, fears and plans, but if you want a little more background then check out … Continue reading Why I Plan on Going Full Time Coach (Time Rich, Cash Poor, Part 3)
I think I’ll turn this into a series of posts which I’ll revisit now and again. I’m writing it mainly to map out my own thoughts on changing lifestyle - to keep me focused on the task itself - but there should also be some good information here with regards to the red pill and … Continue reading SMV and Downshifting (Time Rich, Cash Poor Part 2)
Is it better to be rich in time but poor in money or rich in money but poor in time? This is something I’ve thought a lot about recently, what with my impending change in lifestyle, and I want to discuss it today. I intend on moving over to a time rich, cash poor lifestyle … Continue reading Time Rich, Cash Poor?
