Why: I want to experience BEING ALIVE without worrying about money - biggest mental step towards financial freedom. 

Done, 01 Jun - 31 May 2018: I left my job and spent a year learning and volunteering. I did "work" but I didn't get paid for it... except for two yoga classes that brought in R450! So I relied entirely on investment income and slashed expenses to the bare necessities (food 2.5K, medical aid 1.5K, housing 1.5K, transport 1K, cell/data 1K). 

I enjoyed the simple lifestyle, but struggled with passivity and isolation. I realised that I don't have to work to live, but I still need to work to challenge my brain, socialise regularly and structure my time. So back to work, with a new appreciation for all the non-monetary rewards that it brings!
