“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”
Unknown

Welcome to life after the daily grind


I currently live in the rat race, days filled with emails and pointless meetings. I spend time thinking about what makes a fulfilling life and question society’s expectations. I’ve started to plan my escape so I can live a life less ordinary. This blog documents that journey. It’s partly FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) and partly me writing about stuff I find interesting. If you enjoy what I write, please sign up to my newsletter or drop by once a month to see what’s new. Feel free to get in touch if you have any feedback or questions.

– Richard
