This is a guest post by David Sawyer, author of the brand new UK-focused financial freedom book: RESET: How to Restart Your Life and Get F.U. Money. David suggests you don’t do any of the steps below while operating heavy machinery.
I have been on a journey, which led me – via my discovery of the largely US financial independence movement – to reset my life.
In my first book RESET, I draw on my family’s experience – and that of myriad academics, athletes, self-help authors, and philosophers – to present a programme for midlife professionals to, within a year, take stock of their lives and transform their futures.
The plan is multi-faceted but The Investor asked me to cut through the 373 pages, 511 Notes and 15-page index to give his readers (that’s you) – my top ten tips.
GFulcher66: KTFA, while we wait, imo Iraq is done in all they need to do on their part for the release of the IR, since this is the case and we still wait, as F26 has taught the USA/BIS/UN (those who took their IR away are the ones in charge of when they give it back to them.)
So since Iraq is looking so great and we still await the IR imo it seems to me that they await for their asset backed IR to have an basil111 compliant system system (non-fiat) to be ready for them, bc imo it's not right to dump an asset backed currency in a petro/fiat system that is converting to the new cips system...???
Just a theory that makes more sense to me since Iraq is looking so close and wants this as bad as we do for their economy and citizens!

In his introduction to Working, the landmark 1974 oral history of work, Studs Terkel positioned meaning as an equal counterpart to financial compensation in motivating the American worker. “[Work] is about a search…for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor,” he wrote.
Among those “happy few” he met who truly enjoyed their labors, Terkel noted a common attribute: They had “a meaning to their work over and beyond the reward of the paycheck.”
More than forty years later, myriad studies have substantiated the claim that American workers expect something deeper than a paycheck in return for their labors. Current compensation levels show only a marginal relationship with job satisfaction.
