Apparently my five questions about financial independence and retirement are getting around. Forbes.com just picked up the article I wrote in early November, much of which is based on Chapter Two of The Confident Retirement Journey. Rereading the article reminded me that I must also constantly ask those same questions for myself.
This article publication comes shortly after I wrote a piece on my personal blog about why my wife and I like to read obituaries. Last week we had attended an impressive cremation procession in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. Only after reading the obituary and the eulogy of the deceased prince did I realize his accomplishments and vision, which are what my five questions are all about. You can read my commentary at Ron & Kathy's Midlife Adventures, on the December 10 and 16 entries.
