# 94 On The Trail For Enthusiasts

For those of you who want to explore some topics in Freedom, Time, Happiness (FTH) even further


Happy new year! I hope you and your loved ones share a wonderful year in 2020.

And my thanks to all of you who wrote to me, whether via website or LinkedIn comments or via personal emails, saying nice things after I expressed my gratitude for my life’s good luck. That simply adds to it.

Today I’m uploading a  dozen advanced pieces in this section, if you’re someone who wants to dig even deeper into some aspect of the topics we’ve shared in FTH. And it’s the final piece of FTH. Now you have the whole book.

There’s no logic to the inclusion of these pieces. They’re just random things I needed to understand in the course of my research, and I’ve always found that the best way for me to understand something is to write an explanation addressed to myself. In fact that’s how all of this – FTH and Life Two – developed: I’m living my own Life Two, and I wanted to understand if there was a way to make it happy and meaningful. You see the result.

It helped me enormously. I hope it helps you too!

I have written about retirement planning before and some of that material also relates to topics or issues that are being discussed here. Where relevant I draw on material from three sources: The Retirement Plan Solution (co-authored with Bob Collie and Matt Smith, published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2009), my foreword to Someday Rich (by Timothy Noonan and Matt Smith, also published by Wiley, 2012), and my occasional column The Art of Investment in the FT Money supplement of The Financial Times, published in the UK. I am grateful to the other authors and to The Financial Times for permission to use the material here.
