“Before I discovered the FIRE movement I was somewhat of a workaholic. Getting ahead at work and securing a better position were hugely important to me. As a result, I used to put in long hours, obsess over work matters during and after work, and talk my beloved’s ear off about work.
Then I discovered the FIRE movement. Once my mindset started to shift into FIRE mode, my perspective changed. Suddenly, I wanted to spend all of my time with my beloved, and the idea of going to my job every day became a chore.”
