Have you all seen this article about Chris Hemsworth deciding to take a career break after finding out that he has a much higher risk of getting Alzheimer's disease?
When I saw the article, it reaffirms my decision why I decided to FIRE. Well of coz I am no Thor(in terms of wealth, success and looks LOL), but we are all human. Nobody knows what's going to happen in the future. This can happen to anyone of us, even the rich and famous.
Of coz if working brings you joy, then that's a totally different story.
"While the actor said he is more comfortable about turning down projects, he is by no means retiring and is simply taking "a more curated approach" to the jobs he takes on."
This is definitely my approach since I left the corporate world in July 2022. Fortunately I am still loving it and haven't lost any structure in my life nor my identity.
