Top Three

Thursday’s Top Three (TTT #009)

As part of this series, I’ll be sharing the Top Three articles I’ve read over the prior week with you all every Thursday.

The articles that will be featured can either be fresh or selected from other blogs’ archives. The only rule to be included in the collection is that it’s an article that I’ve read in that particular week.

Generally, I try to select pieces that made me think about something from a new perspective or that emotionally spoke to me. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I did!

Here are this week’s TTT:

Fire and Wide on career changes and balance
In this article, the author reflects on career choices, change, the FIRE community as well as the most important thing of all: Balance. Nice read, and a fitting submission as part of this month’s Sovereign Quest challenge!

Early Retirement Now on stealth frugality
This article is worth it for the great graph alone! ERN introduces the concept of stealth frugality as compared to stealth wealth, which refers to strategically signalling spending and enjoying life a little while on the journey to FIRE. I always love articles that make me think about something from a new perspective.

Personally, I’m torn about sharing my plan to FIRE. I shared it in the past because it seemed far away, and some former colleagues still ask me about how that’s going. However, I have not mentioned it to my current work colleagues, because I don’t want them to think that I may not be fully invested in my career. It’s a fine line.

Financial Imagineer on fatherly lessons
Just in time for father’s day, Financial Imagineer reflects on money lessons from childhood. A very personal article with plenty of inspiration on how to teach kids about money by letting them experience it from early on as well as leading by example.

“Any man can become a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad!” – True words.


Do YOU want to be featured? Have you written an article that I absolutely must read?
Let me know about it, and I’ll consider including it in the next TTT.
