Weekend Reading – insane work hours edition


Since coming back from our month long Danish vacation, I have been pulling some crazy work hours. For the last 2 weeks I’ve been getting up at 5:25 AM Monday to Friday just so I can get to work at 6:30 AM for my daily customer calls to track progress of a multi-million dollar project. The 6:30 AM calls are necessary because we’re dealing multiple time zones.  Because the participating parties are from Asia, Europe, and North America, someone has to get up early and someone has to stay up late. We’re making incremental progress on the project so hopefully these daily calls will end soon. Another reason to become financially independent one day so I can determine my own schedule.

The nice thing about getting to work super early? I get to leave work in the early afternoon and get to spend some quality time with Mrs. T and Baby T.

It’s BC Day long weekend this weekend. The weather is looking fabulous and I hope everyone will get some time to enjoy their weekend outside.


Here are some articles I really enjoyed recently.

Joe @ Retire By 40 shared The Ultimate Retirement Checklist. Very useful!

I really enjoyed reading Cat @ Blonde on a Budget’s piece on Going back to a simpler life is not a step backward. Great reminder that we can take a step back in life.

Even Steven wrote about Staring at your future. Sounds like we share similar thoughts on people that work for the sake of working.

Mrs. Frugalwoods shared The false choices that steal our future. As always, great writing from Mrs. Frugalwoods.

Mark @ My Own Advisor states why TFSA is great for potential new home buyers. I’m on the same boat at Mark and believe that TFSA is a way better vehicle compared to RRSP.

DivGuy explained why leverage money is just an illusion.

Jason @ Dividend Mantra asked Shouldn’t the Joneses be keeping up with us? I like your way of thinking Jason!

FI Fighter shared part 3 of his story on how he became a millionaire at age 30. I can’t wait to read part 4!

J. Money shared a simple test to see whether you are financially stable or not. Glad to know that we received a high score on the test.

White Collar Freedom states that it takes two to tango. Can’t agree more.

No More Waffle explained what insanity is. People doing the same thing over and over again always amaze me.

Dividend Growth Investor shared how he manages his dividend portfolio. Great insightful knowledge.


Thanks everyone for dropping by. I really appreciate it. 🙂
