      it never began because you didn't take the initiative to bring it about, you sat back like a lazy moron and expected it to just happen. you still have plenty of time to change though, to improve yourself and your life. but you actually have to do it instead of waiting for some sort of fricking miracle.

        Positives, not going to work, being able to devote as much time and attention as needed to fitness goals, having lots of extra time for friends or family.
        Downsides, essentially living on a fixed income which means you'll be delaying and deferring expensive things you might want to do, and it's really easy to become aimless and unfocused

            Just like that physique, gotta put in the work and be ok with the tradeoffs. I spent 15 years becoming the world's tightest tight ass while also busting ass climbing the ladder in a field I ultimately hated (software). Hit 1.2 mil, now I live off $25k / yr, with insurance provided by spouse who wants to keep working.
            Be prepared for lifelong tradeoffs (I have no car, for instance) and if possible don't do it alone - it's harder.

              software crushes the soul badly, which is why I took a year off. When the AI hype fades you can probably come back and clean up all the LLM dogshit generated code and make bank and then quit again.

                Kek. It might even be worse that parsing offshore-India code. My former company now uses ML for customer service, so I'm just waiting for them to hit an Air Canada legal snag.

    How much money do you think is needed to afford this lifestyle?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      4% rule. You can withdraw 4% of your investments annually and it should last you forever. You want to live on $30k/year? Save 25x that, $750k. Of course, if you continue to work to some extent (like part time or only when you find a temporary job you can enjoy), you can do this with drastically less savings or be a lot more sure your money will last.

        Notably, the trinity study on which the 4% rule was founded was only for a 30 year time horizon.
        So if you're going longer than 30 years, lower your percentage. There are calculators and simulators online.

    Additionally I may add that most people in cities are little more than consumer drone npcs who cant shut up about their degrees pets or small chilldren. They have never devoloped a personality. Most of them have no real skills, you could put 99% of them in a forest in wet weather gear and they'd still manage to kill themselves in a short time.
    Obeying the mainstream today is like signing onto a massive mortage in the last days of the roman empire while other civilisations look on in disbelief at the incredible waste and utter stupidity.

    Yeah but I keep at least some thread of a work life/extra income going. We're probably going to hit something similar to great depression sooner or later and foreign interests usually come sniffing around for property then building gaudy subdivisions. So in the event you want to move it might be good to have an exit strategy.

    Whatever you guys do, don’t end up like my father. He’s 71 and has a large retirement investment portfolio, I don’t know how much but it’s probably a few million, so he could surely easily fully retire, and yet despite retiring from his job a few years back in his late 60s, all he did was just become an independent contractor and do the same exact work he was doing, working most days of the week, business trips, etc.

    I’m pretty sure it’s because if he didn’t work he would literally be doing nothing, like just sitting in the house watching tv and YouTube. He has no friends and really no hobbies. I don’t think he would do any normal retired guy activities like golfing, fishing, or whatever the hell retired guys usually do. So he’ll probably just be working until he physically can’t anymore

      So he works because he has nothing else to do and he loves his job? I see nothing wrong with that. I mean not every one wants to become a NEET.

        Maybe he does, I mean he’s been doing it for a long time. But I think that it’s also that he would just literally be doing nothing all day every day otherwise. I mean retired but still dealing with airports, hotels, and long car drives with traffic to the places he works, it’s great if he likes it but I think it’s more of necessity.

        >He has no friends and really no hobbies

    I’m 32 and Becoming rich and being able to “retire” wouldn’t even make me happy, especially not living like a NEET. I mean my pathetic job is a key part of why I’m so miserable, but if I was to say win the lottery tomorrow and suddenly have tens or hundreds of millions of dollars, my life wouldn’t change whatsoever. I would still be completely socially avoidant and have no friends and would be too afraid to talk to women. And literally any time I have free time, pretty much all I do is completely waste it living like a NEET which makes me miserable. There will be weekends where I go to the gym in the morning and then if I don’t have my hobby planner that day, I will just sit in my room and do literally nothing.

    I am so jealous of how most people have a goal in mind about wanting to retire, wanting to own A house, have those goals to work towards and plan for. I just have nothing. I’m miserable when I do nothing. I’m miserable when I do things. Doesn’t matter. Always miserable

          fwiw I was feel like this at like 27. Don't at 31. Also gym is a hobby.

          It's a ciclical thing, you have to force yourself to do shit for a couple years until it starts getting better.

          Also just get a job. Be nice to people. It all starts to come together, it just takes a lonnggg time. By 30 you could be doing 15% better than now. Your mid 30s and 40s could be great.

          My 30s are much better than my 20s. I get laid all the time and I'm not as awkward.

        I’m the original guy, 30 was the age that sank me into utter despair. It wa the age where I came to terms that I had utterly wasted the most important developmental decade of my life, your 20s, with absolutely nothing to show for it. College years and 20s gone with no relationships, no friendships, no big life experiences that normal people do in their 20s, no vacations, no living on my own, no career development, no goals in mind, absolutely nothing. It’s been nothing but misery and suicidal ideation since then
