“A couple of weeks ago I got to sit through the joyous quarterly occasion that is a performance review. Of course, we don’t call them that because a positive outlook is everything so we call them Inspiration Sessions!! Well, not quite, but it’s a similarly pompous name.
I’m not one of the FIRE bloggers who loves their job and says they’d keep working even with money in the bank. I’m one of those FIRE bloggers who checks their numbers every Monday and sighs before opening the job pages and seeing if something else has come up before eventually getting down to work for the day.
But, despite all this, I still got a Great outcome in my performance review thanks to my FIREy pursuits.”
