Here's Journal Club 09-23-22! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!
- Is it possible to take an extended break from work if you’re pursuing financial independence? If yes, how would this long break affect your FIRE date? Would this cause any delays? Is there a way to enjoy the extended break without heavily altering your FIRE goal? Well, there’s good news. The Physician on FIRE answers these questions and more in the article – Minimizing the Impact of a Sabbatical on Your FIRE Date.
- “I think I’m close to achieving financial independence to retire early, but I’m going to stick around for one more year just to be absolutely sure.” Does this sound familiar? It seems logical and something that many of us go through. However, Mr. Money Mustache calls it the “One More Year Syndrome” and shares his perspective on overcoming it in the article – Why You’ll Probably Never Run Out Of Money.
- The global pandemic has been tough for each of us for various reasons; arguably, the financial crisis was one of the biggest challenges faced by many in the past two years. However, the author of SurgiFI wishes to remind us that “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.” The author takes a closer look at the steadily shifting trends bridging the wealth gap in our communities in the article – You’re doing better financially than you think.
That's all for this week! I hope this week's journal club was helpful.
