Enter: The 4-Act Structure (and Early Financial Independence)
I’m going to go ahead and just steal from the Japanese 4-Act Structure, cause it’s awesome. They throw in “The Twist”: a contrasting, even seemingly nonsensical, departure from the character and situation set up in the first and second acts.
Act 3 (The Twist!)
Achieve early financial independence or semi-retirement. Change it up! This is the time for less work, being active, traveling, and raising children. (Ok, I admit, the children part bunks the travel part a little. Oh well.)
