Lately, I’ve been feeling disenchanted with my job and can’t see myself hacking it for another 30+ years.
It’s the time and head space that my job occupies. At least 55 hours per week. That’s a huge chunk of time.
While I feel quite productive at my job and am so grateful to be employed, I also feel like what I’m doing is not contributing to anything important except the company’s bottom line.
This is not a sustainable way for me to live.
Luckily, I see this job as a means to an end. I want to save as much as possible, set up passive income streams, and live a simple lifestyle.
Once my passive income exceeds my living expenses, I will quit.
We’re not quite there yet though, but are actively working towards it.
