Two weeks before my 48th birthday, I realized that my career of choice had mutated into something that I did not recognize, and my health depended on getting out, and doing so immediately. I then looked at my portfolio and realized that if I managed my money properly, I could retire.
It wasn’t an easy decision; in the meantime, I’ve dealt with cancer, and healing from that emotionally was less traumatic that this was. However, I have no regrets, and sadly, 100% support from colleagues, most of whom wish they could do the same thing.
Poysyn, whatever this decision is that you’re making, changes are never easy, but they’re often for the best.
