I spend more time with my kids than most, but I want more.
I aim to retire by 40. That’s in less than 3 years.
This hasn’t been a long-term desire. It’s a fairly recent pursuit. The idea of not maximizing my once-in-a-lifetime window where all my kids still think I’m cool gets to me some times.
- I block off my calendar every day so I can walk them to school.
- I don’t (usually) work evenings.
- I don’t (usually) work weekends.
40 years old also aligns with when my oldest turns 10. 40 and 10 make for a perfect target of retiring so that I can spend even more time with all of my kids while they’re all still little’ish.
Am I close to making it happen?
Not on paper.
Am I on track in other ways?
If I pull it off, I probably wouldn’t call it quits. I’d probably more semi-retire.
Work is a hobby to me. I enjoy entrepreneurship.
Working in a way that my kids didn’t think I worked sounds ideal.
M-F, something like 10am -2pm, after they leave for school and off before they come home.
They’d never even know.
