Perhaps one day, my system of asceticism and refusal to submit to drudgery will prove hubristic and will blow up in my face like a comedy cigar. If that happens, I’ll have to go back to the day job, tail between my legs. But even in these unlikely circumstances, against which I have taken precautions, I will at least have enjoyed some (fit, healthy, youthful) years of freedom and will have something interesting with which to regale my colleagues at the water cooler.
Jacob from Early Retirement Extreme kindly allowed me to write a guest entry at his blog: “No more mindless submission“. The post is ostensibly my personal escape story but contains what I hope is a breakdown of useful practices.
