FULL DISCUSSION
 

I think I would do a series of different side projects, each designed to learn a particular skill. I would give myself some simple rules to maximize the learning experience from a number of different aspects.

  1. The project must turn into a profitable business that can be run passively (a.k.a. apps you pay a fixed price for, games, etc.)
  2. I must understand an unfamiliar technology after completing it
  3. It must be time-boxed to one month at a minimum, three months at a maximum (with the exception of a single one-year long shot)

Lol you're basically asking me what I would do if I were financially independent right now. Four FREE years would get me ridiculously excited. Although experience teaches me it'll be a long a difficult slog with many twists and turns
