I've been inside the stretch run (final 6 months of work) for several months now and it's been very challenging for me psychologically. I have so much freedom and flexibility with my work, yet, I have grown to strongly dislike not being the owner of my own time. I have about another 2 months left.
I keep thinking about what I'm going towards rather than what I'll be moving away from, but it just doesn't seem to help.
I want to volunteer to provide free financial coaching to others.
I want to spend significantly more time with my daughter and wife.
I want to build an army of like-minded FIRE individuals to go out and change the world.
And I want all that now or even yesterday. These desires became even stronger when I read Pete's eulogy to his father.
For those of you who already achieved FIRE, how did you push/motivate yourself during those final few months?
