I want to be able to roll up to a job interview and not give a fuck about what it pays or whether I get it — and have the freedom to politely quit whenever, or as an experiment to see what would happen. Okay, I’m talking crazy. But you get my drift.
I don't think you're talking crazy, you're talking "the dream". :) There are so many people who are scared at the probability of losing their safety job that they avoid try new things or follow their interests. You wrote, in another article, "Two income streams at a minimum". In a way, I think it sprouts from the same core idea, that we want more freedom in what we do.
