Naval Ravikant on Retirement

“Retirement is when you stop sacrificing today for an imaginary tomorrow. When today is complete in an of itself, you are retired.”

“…[one way to get there is to] do something you love. You enjoy it so much it’s not about the money… …the way to get out of the competition trap is to be authentic, to find the thing you know how to do better than anybody. You know how to do it better because you love it, and no-one can compete with you. If you love to do it, be authentic and then figure out how to map that to what society actually wants. Apply some leverage and put your name on it.”
