  1. Great thoughts, Perry, thank you for sharing. Freedom is such a hard thing to earn, it would be a shame to waste it when it comes (and it comes, at least in little portions, every single day) just for failing to give it some thought.

  2. Thank you Perry.

    I wanted to say that this was a f****g good video :-)

    I am sorry but that was my reaction.

    This topic is something I spent like weeks to write down, but that was in 2009 and it is a pretty hard work… not to mention that we change as time goes by.

    Also I know and feel that this is going to be a big challenge once I get there; once I just work a couple of hours on my business per day, I will still need to face this biggest challenge of all: spending money and time in a valuable manner.

    Even though I worked with this topic a lot I happen to forget the importance of this and thank you very much Perry for reminding us.

    All the best

  3. superb post Perry! bookmarking this one to listen to frequently. the bucket list reminder and where we are at in this stage of life is a gold nugget thought!

  4. Lots of great thoughtful stuff here Perry, thank you. I like the way you said “Earn your freedom” – for me its a great way to to frame the process of creating a business or income that grants me the overwhelming power of choice. It reminds me of prison (no I have never been there yet) where people are required to ‘do time’. Once you’re done doing your time you earn your freedom back – but many prisoners have no idea how to assimilate back into a free society. So they commit another crime just so they can get back into the familiar walls of institutionalized living. Are we any different? Right now, I site here in a hotel lobby in West Yellowstone. I have a full day of demands on my time for client work. The thought of limiting my workday to 3 hours and then spending the rest of my day pursuing mastery in fly fishing, learning the guitar and blues harmonica, investing time in my children, writing, and learning new skills sounds fantastic but maybe because I’m so institutionalized in the prison of ‘American work ethic’ that I would find a way to sabotage myself. Very thought-provoking stuff… thank you again.
