Running to a big pile of money

I read something the other day that really resonated with me. Partly because it's Christmas, partly because we've just stepped out of Thanksgiving and all the American's are talking about what they're thankful for and what rocks about their lives. Partly, but most;y, because someone asked me to sit down and write out my 6month, 1 year, 3 year and 5year goals and all I had was 'big pile of money, stop going to work'.

I had a target thing that I wanted, but I didn't have a reason why.

Lazy Christmas Update (Progress Report 2/14)

Time for the goals update, but it's also the day before the Christmas holidays kick off, so I'm feeling pretty lazy about writing things out.

Progress Report (1/14)

First update! I've landed on fortnightly for updates, because then it matches nicely with payday.

It's worth noting that I pay everything on a credit card where I can. Because I travel a lot for sports, so rather than paying for flights I can just use rewards points. And because I work for a Big4 bank I'm not paying the fees on the credit card. Winner winner, free flights! That said I've only been using credit cards since February-ish, and while my spending habits haven't changed, watching that number tick up for what I owe on the card is nerve-wracking.

The 'starting' point

Okay, so I'm going to take a bit of a dive into transparency. I'm a little uncomfortable with telling the world about the numbers, but I also want to set myself some accountability.

Fire by Thirty Five means what now...?

Financially Independent and Retire Early by Thirty-Five. Sounds impossible or really simple, depending on your approach.

Here's the plan: $50,000 passive income by 10 February 2026 drawn from a combination of Shares, Peer-To-Peer Lending and Investment Property.
