319: The “Deathbed Toolkit” That Makes Building Wealth Much More Enjoyable
Your financial freedom journey won’t look like anyone else’s. It’s your future, your passion, and your life on the line when trying to hit financial independence. But what are we missing out on during the journey? Are we mindlessly walking towards a “money mirage” where everything in life is perfect and happiness is always abundant, simply because we have more money? Or, is the end of the financial independence journey far less satisfying than it’s hyped up to be?
Doc G, from The Earn & Invest podcast, knows about regret. When he’s not recording episodes about residual income, he’s helping hospice patients who are months, weeks, or even days away from life’s end. He knows what it looks like when someone harbors regret about what they should have done. So many of our greatest regrets are caused by not knowing what we truly want to do. The question is, do you know what will actually make you happy?
It’s okay if you can’t answer that question right away. In Doc G’s newest book Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor's Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life, he gives a concoction of stories, exercises, and thought-provoking metaphors to help you not only reach FI but do so regret-free.
