Welcome to The Edge of Cultivation

This blog is about my journey into the uncharted lands beyond the edge of cultivation.

I’ll be exploring ways to optimise my life in as many areas as possible.   I’ll probably focus on financial issues to start with but, hey, I might throw in some interesting ideas on healthy eating and exercise, property, work, science and technology and a whole bunch of other stuff I haven’t even got round to thinking about yet.

The mainstream media is full of handy hints, tips, tricks and suggestions for living a happier and more fulfilled life.  The trouble is most of them either don’t apply to my specific circumstances or simply don’t work.  Conventional wisdom needs to be placed under the microscope of the scientific method and either explained or discarded.

I’ll be leaving breadcrumbs for those who wish to follow me along the way.
