  • did it surprise yourself that you were able to, you know, retire and do what you wanted to do kind of mid thirties?

  • Is that what you always hoped and thought that was gonna happen if you just kept your discipline uh kind of, uh it's one of those things like I, I, you know, I had ambitions when I was young to do that.

  • Um and it is, the whole point was never that I wanted to retire early, is that I wanted to have the option to retire early, basically be financially free early so that I can then either, you know, continue working when I was working, work on something else, working whatever I want.

  • Uh and so in that sense that, you know, basically went according to plan.

  • And it's one of those things where, you know, in my, in my say mid to late twenties, I was a little bit kind of, you know, under shooting that goal from, from what I wanted.

  • Um Whereas by the time I got to my early thirties I had overshot that goal.

  • Uh So it's one of those things, I think it's even like a Bill Gates quote where it's like people overestimate what they can do in like a week, but they underestimate what they can do in 10 years, right?

  • So it's it's the way that the mind works, you know, so it's like, we, we we don't give yourself enough credit for how, how big we can do something in five or 10 years.

  • Um Whereas we always overestimate what we can do in a short period of time.

  • And so basically by by catching up and ramping up, I kind of actually over, you know, exceeded my goal, I thought maybe by my late thirties or, you know, I'd be more independent, whereas I I kind of got into that early to to mid thirties.

  • Uh huh.

did it surprise yourself that you were able to, you know, retire and do what you wanted to do kind of mid thirties?
