The Biggest Mistake People Make When They Find Out About Fire. [Alan Donegan] — “Why do humans have this self-destructive tendency to make everything binary? I either spend everything I have, go into debt but I am happy, or I spend nothing and miserably work towards FI? Sacrificing happiness for financial independence is stupid. You are sacrificing years of your life to get to a magic number that won’t make you happy either.” (Submitted by J. Money.)

How to Take a Life-Changing Mini-Retirement. [Money Flamingo] — “Have you considered taking a mini-retirement? Whether you feel burnt out and need some time away from your full-time career, want to travel, start a business, or refocus and plan out your future – a mini-retirement or sabbatical might be an ideal break for you.” (Submitted by Harlan.)

Learn How to Beat Inflation and Make Sure Your Retirement is Safe. [Eat Sleep Breathe FI] — “How do you even begin to prepare for a recession in a way that actually makes a difference, rather than just shooting in the dark? We gathered insight from some of our favorite, most trusted financial creators.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)
