TV - 1

In the last post, I shared my long-standing belief with readers that time is our most precious commodity and the one that we should never lose sight of on our quest to early FI. Otherwise, why else are we doing what we’re doing?

But the concept of time is kind of abstract… it means different things to [click to continue…]


Water Fasting: Day 10 (April 25, 2016)

by FI Fighter on April 25, 2016

in Health Updates

We are now on Day 10 of water fasting. Just as I expected, starting around Day 7 or Day 8, I started observing some rather significant changes… During the first week, I did have some difficulties battling hunger pains, but those have now more or less subsided. Blemishes are now more pronounced and [click to continue…]

Out here in the Bay Area, it finally looks like the rainy season has come to an end… maybe… In any event, the weather is starting to warm up again and it’s feeling more and more like spring. With that said, I thought now would be as good at time as any to initiate some spring cleaning. No, not in the traditional sense, although I do have a ton of clutter that I need to sort out before I can check out of Silicon Valley for good and embark for Hong Kong, the site of the next chapter of this journey…

But before we can get from Point A to Point B, I first need to “fix” myself. So, starting today, I’m going to [click to continue…]


Taking Time Off (August 21, 2015)

by FI Fighter on August 21, 2015

in Blog Update, Health Updates

Starting today, I will be taking some time off to get away from everything… I’ll be out of town and hopefully as far as away from technology as possible.

I’m in search of inner peace… I will begin a spiritual journey to better connect myself with our Mother Earth.

It’s time to focus on some other (more important) things than just early FI and finance…

Although the journey to early FI is not yet complete, I believe that I have done everything that I possibly can to position myself for future success. It isn’t always easy, and many of the thoughts and strategies that I have implemented over the years will not resonate with others who are also on the journey.

That’s perfectly fine… If anything, it makes for some great debates and discussions. 🙂

One thing I’ve realized over the years is this — You have to stay true to yourself.

You won’t always be right… In fact, you’ll probably be wrong more times than right.

But learning doesn’t happen overnight… And in the end, you’ve got to go with your conviction and gut, even if it goes against the grain and popular sentiment.


With that said, I want to say “THANK YOU” to all the readers for your support through the last 4 years. It’s been a pretty amazing journey so far and I sincerely appreciate everything — comments, e-mails, meet ups, etc. It’s been an incredible ride…


Now, it’s time to focus on something else…


“For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home.” — Vincent Freeman, Gattaca


You’ve only got one life to live!

Be real.

Be true.

Be yourself.


I’ll be back soon. Take care everyone! Until next time…


Finding Inner Peace…

You could say that I have a restless mind. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a person about accomplishing goals and tackling on the next challenges in life. If you rewind the tape, this is something that I’ve been doing since probably the beginning [click to continue…]


The Real Battle Continues (Day 52)

by FI Fighter on March 13, 2015

in Health Updates


In the last post, I talked about how awesome life is and how much I’m enjoying my time off due to my regained freedom. Of course, like most things, there’s ALWAYS two sides to the coin… a yin and a yang, if you will. I guess you could say that my preference is to try and keep things [click to continue…]



I have now been on a leave of absence from work for 51 days! Yikes, that’s extremely hard for me to believe, and it honestly doesn’t feel like all that much time has passed by already… Wow, in the blink of an eye, almost! Strange, that’s the exact feeling I used to get when I was [click to continue…]


Eating Organic is Expensive (Day 35)!

In my quest to better my health, I’ve had to make a few lifestyle changes. Outside of: reducing stress, sleeping earlier, getting more sleep, regular fresh air and exercise, the one thing I’ve been concentrating the most on is [click to continue…]


Early FI Is Saving My Life

by FI Fighter on February 16, 2015

in Health Updates, Thoughts

When you put your life on the internet, you will be subjected to ridicule. If you can’t deal with that, then it probably isn’t a good idea to put things out on blast. This blog documents one person’s journey to early financial independence and the steps they are taking to [click to continue…]



I haven’t posted an update on my Adrenal Fatigue battle in a few weeks… I guess in part that’s due to the fact that I’ve been trying to tie up a few loose end items that were still lingering in the air. For starters, I was focused on closing Rental Property SH #3, and that barely made it to the [click to continue…]
