My brother texted me the other day. He paid off his student loans.
“What do I do now?” he asks.
I text back: “Awesome. Make millions. Invest. E-trade?”
“Why make millions? I’m not happier the more money I make.” he replied.
That’s a good question and counter-point, brother.
To continue growing through out life, you have to set at least one new goal when you accomplish. His future finances are probably already secured….
When you don’t have a wife to clothe and entertain …or kids to feed and transport to sports/music/work, then you have cash to put towards retirement. Probably don’t even need to invest.
His question however is geared more towards a broader picture of a full life.
Perhaps now is the time to entertain some love in life.
Perhaps earning Most Interesting Man Alive status might be a consideration. Perhaps earning a foosball title should be on the list. Perhaps traveling to all parts of the globe.
Perhaps investing in more experience and more education by do-ing is in order.
Student loans paid off. Now what?
