This Is Not Who We Want To Be

I just want to make a point here just in case people think of it otherwise. The problem in this case is with the person himself – not with working in a fancy job. The problem is that this guy has tied himself down way too much. One can still work for a top notch firm while having paid off your student loans, not buying a fancy car, house, furniture, $200 shirts, business class flights for personal trips, super expensive hotels on vacations and Hampton summer houses.

Doing that is potentially very rewarding, both in the long and the short term.

Great post. Really got me thinking about a lot of stuff and what it really means to be free. All of these items are just weighing us down
Keep it coming man

Excellent article! This is exactly the situation my friend is in… Almost everything except he has a Mercedes instead of bmw and house instead of condo. In less than 2 years my frriends dreams have changed, not out of want but out of necessity, he tied himself down without realizing it. New promotion means he HAS to work there at least 2 more years. After that he bought the house.

Ive come to a conclusion, the easiest way to prevent yourself from tying yourself down is to move. Literally up and go, it takes about 2 years for someone to “settle down” in a new town. AS long as you dont buy a house, car, or knock someone up, youll have the freedom to do as you wish should you have a bigger picture goal or should your desires change.

Having said that I am currently following my own advice and moving to another city.
