WHY YOU SHOULD NOT FOLLOW YOUR PASSION TO FIRE FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE RETIRE EARLY

This is one of my favorite quotes, as there are so many good ones its hard to just narrow it down to one, but this one is at the top...

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. 

He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. 

To himself, he always appears to be doing both.” by Lawrence Pearsall Jacks.

This is not the same as pursuing one-s passion because that automatically puts a distinction and a barrier in my opinion. 

This is work, and this is what is fun or educational or recreational etc. 

Because I have many passions and they are all blurred by my immediate need to be doing what makes the most sense for my happiness right now.

Because my passion is limitless meaning there is not just one thing to have a strong desire for then I have many and varied opportunities to master the art of living this day.

 My greatest passion is I would hope all of humanity would have is simple to do that which makes me happy at any given moment.

 How liberating is that!
