I would like to share with you my bucket list for after Corona era. Actually, it is more of a goal list next to a wish list. There are financial goals, but also travel goals. This list is the result of many hikes where I had a lot of time to think.
Goal 1: Reach FIRE before I am 50
Fire stands for Financially Independent and retire early movement. A few years ago I had already thought that I wanted this and this year I discovered that there is a name for it, namely FIRE. To achieve this, I am accelerating my repayment of my student debt of 33,000 euros and I am building buffers for Databeet as a private of one year each. With Corona measures, I have noticed that a 3-month buffer, which is usually recommended, is too thin. So hence 1 year for both private and Databeet. I have also expanded my investment steps. I have been investing through Crowdfunding and bonds since 2013. That yielded quite a bit. So I expanded this in 2018 with Brightpensioen and this year even with shares and EFTs. So for the time being I am on schedule.
Goal 2: Lose weight
This is a tricky goal associated with my medicine use that needs to be tapered off in very small steps, but with every step it takes 2 kilos off. The medicine can be good for somethings, but have very unpleasant side effects for me such as gaining more than 20 kilos without eating more or more unhealthy food, liver values that are too high, slower eye / hand coordination and some more I won’t bore you with. These are the ones that bother me the most, so I decided to take the risk and phase it out.
Goal 3: Passive income
Because of the Corona measures, I finally have time to do the things that were on my target list for a long time, namely building up passive income. So I am busy with Affilliates in my blogs, collaborating on barter principle, making ecourses from the lessons that I have been given for almost 8 years and eventually developing my book ideas into books.
Goal 4: Walking, Walking, Walking
I walk two to three times a week, long distances from 15 km and up at a time. I like to share these beautiful areas with my followers so soon I will launch my special Hiking website. Then my hiking adventures abroad in the past and my future hiking adventures will also be on display.
Goal 5: Travel even more
Yes my travel bucket list is long. And my work allows it to travel again so San Francisco, Seattle, Bhutan, Chile, Chernobyl, Auschwitz, etc can expect me. Hopefully the Corona measures will ease soon.
Goal 6: Tiny house with mini vegetable garden
My ultimate bucket list item is to live in a Tiny house with a vegetable garden around it. Where I don’t know yet, but the tiny house I already know which model I want. And the vegetable garden is also going to be okay since I already took two wild picking courses last year and will be following another one next year.
What are you looking forward to when relaxing the Corona measures? And what do you still want?
