A Weekend Of Planning

So, I spent most of the weekend going over various savings scenarios. As in, various ways and savings/investment vehicles I could employ and for how long. 

All in an effort to figure out just the best and most balanced method of working (or reworking rather) my Grand Savings Plan.

As I said earlier, I won’t be posting details of it or what percentage of my target that I am at, but I will say that I have a plan and a new end date of April 7, 2024.

I groan at the thought of me being 54 years old before I can start this new chapter in my life. 

Yes, the thought of pushing it till 55 and then just buying a cabin somewhere and retiring early has crossed my mind. 

Just like the thought of buying something (cheap house/condo) and giving up on this all together has also crossed my mind.

I am still committed to this plan and I will move forward as best I can and deal with what comes my way when and if it does. 

Sure, a large cash windfall or crowdfunding (pause for laughter) could speed up this process, just like unemployment or a large and unexpected bill could derail this plan.

That’s life.

All we can do is decide on a plan, enact that plan, work that plan and deal with problems as they arise. 

The thing to remember is that you are free to (and should) re-evaluate and alter your plan when and if it becomes necessary. 

Never continue to work a plan, simply out of inertia or not wanting to look bad or . . . you know . . . habit.

So, I have a new plan and will work it until the plan comes to fruition, or I somehow need to come up with a new plan.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
