Winning or Losing by Saving???

A few weeks ago, I came across this Instagram post from CNBC on a Grant Cardone quote. 

"You can skip spending $5 at Starbucks every day and save $10,000 over the next 5 years, but if you think $10,000 is going to change your life, you're not just broke, you're being stupid." - Grant Cardone

FIRE(D) - Financial Independence Retire Early (by Default???).  So, I had planned on being out of the corporate workforce within two years to concentrate on my investments, property, and businesses.  Well, that plan was just accelerated after I was let go from my position this past Friday, 11/30/2018, due to downsizing.  So now, Decision Day approaches.  Now, the fun begins . . .

Well, that was a quick 2.5 years . . .

After a 2.5 year hiatus - and I'm not really sure if that was intentional or not - I decided it was time to post an update.  Wow, a lot has happened with a few trips around the sun!  Looking through past posts, I have mixed feelings.  I can honestly say I'm proud of how much I've stayed the course, even without writing this blog to help keep me in line.  However, I also remember why I think I stopped writing for a while.  I think I wanted more out of my writing and I gave up trying to get there.  That lack of fulfillment came maybe as I ran low on interesting material that I was passionate about writing or maybe as I felt my time was better spent on productive activities such as reading or researching ideas, rather than writing about dreams.  Anyhow, I guess I got the bug again . . .
