• Making up for lost time and health at the end of your life is not the only way to live
  • Your job title and what you buy do not need to be who you are
  • Teach yourself skills you were paying others to know
  • Health is a state of being, not a product you can buy from a doctor or insurance broker

Early Retirement Extreme

by Jacob Lund Fisker

  • "... An omnivore always has more options available when solving the problem of eating"
  • Strategy is a "web of actions" that will not fail when any one plan does
  • Shift focus from goals to how you set goals
  • Build skills for navigating lifestyles not skills specialized to a lifestlye

Small critique: Fiskar's four types all have masculine titles. Obviously, people can be a part of the workforce regardless of gender.

  • Salary man — one source of invariable income
  • Working man — freelancer with variable income
  • Businessman — entrepreneur focused on profit
  • Renaissance man — generalist fairly independent of the marketplace
