I’ve been working on setting intentions recently (and having a hard time with it to boot.) I think part of the problem is that I’m still not sure how an intention differs from a goal.
Anyway one of the things I initially came up with as something I wanted was “financial independence”. But then I got to thinking, what IS financial independence? How do you define it?
At first I thought it would be mean having our house paid off, plenty of money in the bank, a reliable income, and excellent insurance, but is that really “all” it takes?
That can’t be all, because I’d probably be pretty unhappy if I had our house paid off, plenty of money in the bank, a reliable income, and excellent insurance, and I had to work 80 hours a week at a job I hated to maintain that status.
I just don’t know how to define it clearly.
And if I don’t know, how can I get there?
Maybe I’m over thinking this. How do YOU define financial independence?
