Retirement starts when you stop sacrificing today for some imaginary tomorrow.

You retire by saving up enough money, becoming a monk, or by finding work that feels like play to you. - Naval Ravikant

I’ve enjoyed tried full retirement for basically the past two years.

While I thoroughly enjoy the peace of mind, being able to do whatever I want when I want, and only doing things I enjoy, there is something still missing.

I was talking with someone yesterday who said basically everyone they knew who had sold a company had gone into a type of depression at some point. I’d heard instances of this, but found, still find, that hard to believe. But I can understand it. If one’s identity is solely the business they are in, and then they ‘lose’ it, I can completely understand the sense of loss.

But I don’t think I had that, so it’s something else.

Now that I am, part-time, on the cusp of working on something, I’m interested to see if that fills the invisible gap or void or whatever it is that I think is there.

This piece captures my thoughts and perspectives at the time of writing. As I continue to learn and grow, my views are subject to change, without notice.
