On May 30th, 2023, I got a Certificate of Work Completion for the largest project I have been paid for - and yes, I have been paid for it, in cash, though some of the balance is still outstanding as of the time I write this.

Unless the United States Government defaults on its contract, this makes me a millionaire by accepted accounting standards.

While this gives me financial security as long as I do not spend imprudently, financial freedom comes with ethical obligations as well. As the French say: la noblesse oblige.

Here are the main sources of obligations I see:

As I look ahead to the upcoming decades, I hope to be able to stay humble, ethical, volunteer a great amount of my time, and share my knowledge freely with as many people as possible.

If you have any other tips for how to live, my email is always open. Likewise, if you have anything you want to know or discuss or that you would like me to share with you drop me a line. I look forward to hearing from you.
