I plan to play it by ear when we reach the FI point. I don't necessarily intend to quit that very moment but it will depend on our life circumstances as well as how tolerable to j*b is. But it will be a great feeling when I reach the point where I am free to tell them they can have their j*b if it sucks too much.
I'd imagine being truly FI and working only because you WANT to is a very liberating feeling, perhaps even more so than becoming 100% debt-free. Though in reality, it's often the latter which enables the former.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)
