I do like this blog.

However, the message board seems really sad. A lot of people just want to spend as little money as possible and do as little as possible.

Saving money to do something with your life the way MMM does is great. But saving money to just sit in your 4 walls at home and not have to deal with anybody is sad.

Many people have sad lives when spending a lot of money.

Not wasting money doesn't magically make people better at living.

But it can certainly free those who do want to do things with their lives to have the ability to do so.

Some people are happy that way.  I'm perfectly content to sit in my house and look for stock ideas or read...or watch my Canucks...or a football game.  You don't have to go bungee-jumping and zip-lining while curing your own artisan meats, and then ride your bike through the streets of Paris to be happy.  Sometimes a cup of coffee and a donut is all you need!  Cheers!

I would put you in my first category then. If you retire early to read books or pick stocks clearly you chose to eliminate your job to have more time for a hobby that improves your life.
