The stress of working? Or not working.

The most important thing that I wanted to achieve through my financial independence journey was to reduce my levels of stress.

 I had been measuring my levels of stress every day using Samsung health app and this is what i have to show you. The decision to quit job and be FI was taken in Nov 18, and see the fail in level of stress. It just nosedived.

Did i just outperform the index?

It was heartening to see that my portfolio outperformed NIFTY by double in last one month.
While 3 months performance has also outperformed NIFTY by falling only 2.3% when Nifty fell by 6%

Should I commute my pension?

For a long time in my life, i have contemplated being financially independent so as not to work 9 to 5 and slog to earn money. My idea of life is to have income from momentum efforts (make efforts one time but reap benefit multiple times) (mostly) and live on that income to do what you love to do (without @$$holes telling you what to do in office/ life).

Therefore my aim has been to become able to earn from momentum efforts like invest in a property and reap rentals, or create a course and enjoy repeated returns from enrolments, write books and enjoy royalty from repeated sales. Any effort that gives me only this month's salary is a wasted effort, IMHO.

Therefore this website will be dedicated to my F.I.R.E. efforts using stock markets, realty, courses, books and all other things that I'd do to remain financially independent thru momentum efforts.

The posts on this site will be a mix of podcasts and articles so be sure that you subscribe to my podcasts from www.SaurabhBhatia.com or see them at Youtube on youtube.com/c/saurabhbhatia, my channel.
