Choosing where to live before choosing what to do.

One of the few things I've done right is choosing where to live before choosing what to do for a living. Most of the big money's in the big cities, and most of the people making it wear neckties and spend their waking hours in offices. They're wage-slaves who are miserable fifty weeks a year so that they can spend two weeks a year where I live. I'd love to trade paychecks with them, but I sure wouldn't trade lifestyles.

I notice this expands on an item from your excellent "Advice to my kids" post from last's a great list, and well worth re-visiting every now and then.
