The Cure for the Boring Middle | Fioneers | Ep 472

In this episode: the boring middle, lifestyle design, flow states, moving towards purpose, experiments, and experiences.

This week, we are rejoined by friend of the podcast, Jessica from The Fioneers, to discuss the point of your FI journey known as the “Boring Middle,” and how, through actionable steps and lifestyle design, you can turn what feels like a stagnant stage in your FI journey, into one filled with growth and change! When you are well on your path toward reaching your FI goal, it is easy to feel like you’re not doing enough. But what feels like a waiting game can actually be a crucial time for self-growth and experimentation. Taking the time to do some introspection to determine your core motivations can allow you to begin opening yourself up to newer experiences that bring value into your life. So, if you feel like you are currently on autopilot, there are steps you can take to shake up your routine and usher in new opportunities in your life. While you may have to quiet your own limiting beliefs in this process, you will learn more about yourself and what you want out of your life!
