Long short about me:
Job- Real Estate Development/Acquisitions
Compensation: Base of $110k w/ bonuses (performance & deal related) about $170-180k this year (I made about $140k last year
Problem: I am bored as fuck and the path forward is lucrative but I feel like I need to do something more with my life before I am on the path to monetary success. Growing up I was a 'naval cadet' w/ a SEAL specialization and yes it was a cadet experience, not the actual thing, etc etc shit was fucking cash rolling around an urban setup with the Miles system slamming blanks at each other. I can't stop thinking of it and how I am missing out on the opportunity to do something interesting before I 'retire' myself to a 9-5 job. I had a sit down with one of my VPs and he said the best decision he made in his life was a stint in the Navy before he turned 30, and he believes it defines who he is. I also have two friends who have gone 18X and they are pushing me to do it knowing I (hopefully) should succeed and will enjoy it.
The other problem is my gig is pretty sweet and although I am not materialistic by any means, I enjoy making money.
Has anyone ever been in this position? Input? Advice? I don't want to live with regrets
