I started blogging in November 2017. So, my first quarterly net worth update was six months out (or two quarters into being an attending anesthesiologist). How am I doing now? What goals have I achieved? Grab a drink, sit down, and come find out in the 2nd Quarterly Net Worth Update.
As I wash my hands right after I hang up the phone, the overhead call rang out:  "Attention.  Your attention, please. A Level 1 trauma code has been activated in the adult emergency department."  It was a gun shot wound to the right chest.  I rinse my hands off, and head down to the ED... just another night in A Doctor's Life.  Ready. Rinse. Repeat.
If you made it through Part 1 (My background), congratulations.  That was probably not what you expected to read, but I bet the rest of this post will be.  FIRE bloggers have been charged to come clean, and so here it goes! The TPP Blogging Manifesto.  Part 2: Coming clean.
Have you ever felt that impending doom of being seen as a failure?  If you have any humility about yourself, the answer is probably yes.  It's called "imposter syndrome."  The prescription?  Avoid the Duning-Kruger effect. Want to know what that is and how to avoid it?  Just keep reading.
In recent news, FIRE bloggers have been charged with creating a manifesto to describe their background and means for financial independence and early retirement. In Part 1 of the TPP Blogging Manifesto, I plan to lay out exactly what my financial beginnings looked like. Come step inside my head a bit & get to know me.
We love talking about obtaining FIRE, but what do we do after that? What is your draw down plan?  Today we will discuss one aspect of that plan, which is how to bridge the early retirement gap between when you FIRE and when you turn age 59.5.
