I agree. It’d be wholly impractical to do something like that, even for only 1 year as mentioned, if I’m still heavily involved in markets. Especially so with leverage if trades still active. Hence I’m looking at such a period being a few years away. Any loose ends in markets would have to be tied-up before I proceed. Maybe just keep some divi-paying real shares.
I’m really looking at it from the point of view of a kind of much-needed spiritual cleansing. Hence even making a pledge to myself.
I feel that there have been far too many time-consuming distractions in my life due to technology &, with it, preoccupations with materialistic & financial concerns that, overall, have added little of value to my life bar financial gain with real shares.
When I’m away & on the road (mind, I won’t be travelling for the entire year), I’ll rely solely on radio & traditional newspapers for keeping in touch with world affairs. The only compromise: a Kindle when travelling as the scope of that is fairly limited. It’s tantamount to taking along x-amount of books, but still travelling lightly. - Regards.
