Why are people so concerned with this one short span of their lives that they will sacrifice their youth to it's benefit?
A recent poster had 1.3 million and most advised him to keep stressing and pushing.
Have you guys lost all perspective? People would rather slave away for 45 years in a job they only mildly like or hate so they can be a comfortable old person.
Enjoy your resources while young! Find something you love! It's so silly. If I reframed the question and said "would you prefer to start life as a frugal old man for 15 years so you could live passionately for 45 as a young person or live 15 years as. Comfortable rich bugger and then the next 45 hoarding away money and working in a job that made economic sense" what would you pick?
