The “What is Enough” column….
Cullen – apart from the completely transparent sucking up – this piece – although not nearly as “deep” as some of your Economic Myths series – struck home in a real, tangible way.
It is refreshing to see someone like yourself dispense practical, real world thoughts about tempering expectations to our reality. I learned that “enough” was 11 years ago – when I retired from policing – but then continued to work at a succession of ever increasing roles. Jobs have changed, salary has increased – but we are still living on the same budget we created 11 years ago! I planned this and have been fortunate enough to have been able to stick to it for the whole time. Needless to say – when “real” retirement hits in the next 24-36 months – we’ll be well prepared for any eventuality.
Thanks for a great column and keep up the solid writing!
